The art of L. Turkay has its origin in the city between two continents: Istanbul, the city of the artists childhood. These are influences from Asian and European culture mixed in an immense variety of colours and forms. The many facettes of Istanbul ? many cities within a city -are reflected in the many different styles of an art that nevertheless has its uniqui fingerprint. Moods, light , colours are so vast and overwhelming that it seems that in many of Turkay's paintings the forms do not fit into the boundries set by the size of the canvas. The pictures give the impression that there is still something that is not shown, still somthing going on beyond the canvas and that what we see is only a small detail of the undefined world the picture is surrounded by. Yet, there is a certain lightness, something like humour among all the denseness of the manifold information that captures the eye. We can find this music in the drawings that often lead us to associations with landscapes or architectural concept.
