entitled “Peace.” The artwork is somewhat stylized with characteristically solid elements flowing together to create the scene. The assembled paintings evoke a vivid sense of time and place. While Kivanc clearly experiments with various media, a strong aesthetic point of view is present in each composition
too. A few of the best works can be compared with Gauguin in terms of their unnatural color palette and the use of flat interconnecting shapes. These works include “Child Carrying Child” and “Palace Gate Road.” Readers who enjoy the style of David Hockney’s landscapes will also enjoy “Hills” and “Through
the Window” in which soft flowing swathes of fantastical colors evoke a panorama. The subjects of the paintings are mostly landscapes, women and children.
