The effect the artist’s paintings will have on the audience may be formulated as “neither more nor less”. While these are thought of as an indication that everything was used in their suitable places in the works, if it catches its “audience” – each piece of work gives birth to its audience and the opposite is also true.  Thus, an efficient and effective communication arises between the audience and the works of Tuğba Hacısüleymanoğlu.

Spending your time seeking for symbols, thinking on these and the wings, eyes, pieces that emerge as a result of that… But in any case it is a search for freedom. It is up to the audience where to find direction afterwards. It should not be forgotten: You do not learn something about life, you simply “remember” it. May be what the audience needs to do would be to remember tomorrow, by gazing at the wings of a bird or into the eyes of a woman.
