Lives and works in Frankfurt am Main, Germany
On private journeys, the artist photographs and documents old decaying mansions, which must give way to modern architecture, both inside and out. This switch means change. This change forms the basis of our perpetual perception of people and societies. So they are time fragments that we look at in Deniz Old’s works. The depicted rooms and houses in the landscape paintings may not exist at this moment in which the artist has captured them. Likewise the people who find their expression in the portraits and figurative elements.
