The “Wood” series takes Bilge’s desire to expand beyond the
boundaries of a canvas and to conjugate it with the physical origin of life itself on the most natural and organic of media. Slices of tree trunks, elaborately treated and prepared are the elements on which Bilge paints his message. The series tells about energy, life and beauty as well as about oppression, ignorance and environmental disruption. The ‘Turkish Whirling’ technique is still predominant throughout the series.
