1526380043 WOMAN IMAGES IN THE WORKS OF OMUR EKE

Women images have been used as one of the most common themes of plastic arts in almost every period and culture of the life. Since the day when art begins to develop with the history of humanity, the women image also found its own direction parallel to the current age. The studies with female images presented in different periods is an indicator for us to read the social status of the period, the way of thinking, the observations on the woman and the definition of the woman from a gender perspective. Therefore, our main purpose in this work is to analyze Omur Eke's, who is both woman and artist, woman images. The woman image is the main focus of Omur Eke's artwork and this image has been taken up in a variety of gender contexts with various descriptions. Particularly, the loneliness of women in modern life, the happiness or sadness of women in urban life, the areas of her liberty, the abuses that are exposed, her femininity and psychology while self-expression is being shaped in daily activities. The artist presents the dailylife woman considering traditional perceptions and its aesthetic values in its current period. Moreover, she illustrates it in her paintings enriching with her own style.
