Berkay Bugdan has been working with rust in most of his works since the beginning of his artistic career, where he used this medium to observe an annihilation process where the materials are transformed organically. A perceptual transition takes over as delicate negotiations of existence are revealed between oil paint and rust, blurring the seperations in between. This could be traced where the creation phase is paused in each work that evokes a sense of motion throughout the series. Order is reclaimed, where devolution processes are dominated by the cycle of chaos and its temporality, rather than emphasizing sole creation.
