Adnan Coker's abstract constructivist work is concerned with
volumes of objects, reducing colour to a minimum and shapes to
geometric outlines. His interest in the geometry of local Islamic
architecture, including domes, triangles and minarets informs much
of his work. Using these forms he sees around him, he tries to
create a coded language of esoteric meaning. In his large canvases
the historical starting points are Seljuk, Byzantine and Ottoman
aesthetic concepts and images. Architectural overtones come out
strongly in his works. For him black represents the vacuum of
space, neutral rather than nihilistic, and not a coloured surface.
Other colours are kept to a minimum, with luminous pink, purple and
mauve shapes which seem to glow against the black ground. Domed
forms feature prominently in Coker's repertoire. Coming from a city
dominated by so many majestic domes rising above all other
buildings, they represent the city of Istanbul itself. Through
minimal means, Coker creates compositions which evoke many
associations and readings.
