Gaye Su Akyol-Flying Kilims, 2021 - Limited Edition Signed Edition
The Keep's exciting collaboration with Gaye Su Akyol Uçan Kilimler consists of three designs: Leyla, Meeting with the Sun Goddess and Summer Air. The artist's long-standing relationship with painting this time meets with the weavings he always loves and is curious about. Each item is limited to 50 editions.
The artist describes this collaboration as follows:
“I have had an extraordinary interest and love for Anatolian rugs since my childhood. When I was a child, I used to look at the rugs and carpets in my grandmother's house and my father's workshop and dreamed about. I would invent camel caravans, galloping horses, space battles, 8-bit games, intrigues, and a whole lot of other stories I don't remember. For an exhibition we planned last year, I dreamed of hand-woven carpets made of patterns I drew, but the exhibition was postponed due to the epidemic. Meanwhile, our paths crossed with Senem and Bilge, and being a part of this brand and partnership, which is fully realized by the power of women, gave me strength and inspiration.”
