Leyla Gediz

is a Turkish painter. Leyla Gediz studied at Chelsea College of Art and Design London, Städelschule für Bildende Künste Frankfurt, The Slade School of Fine Art and at Goldsmith College London.  She lives and works in Istanbul, Turkey.

“But we cannot say that Gediz is only a painter of ‘patterns’ of some kind. Her other paintings look at other things which are not patterns, which do not form figures, and in fact, which are not even ‘subject matter’ in the traditional sense, with the same attention. A lined piece of paper, a broken-off key, leaves of a plant taking shelter on the windowsill of an apartment staircase, a smeared chocolate stain, a gesture, a face, a form, a consecutively depicted movement, a landscape.”—Fatih Özgüven
