Semra Özümerzifon has collected a whole range of discarded fishing nets from fishermen of Bosporus. Using these fishing nets in their natural colors, she has created 3D abstract paintings and sculptures. The artist brings not only an unusual approach to painting and sculpting through her 3D images and her soft and transparent sculptures. The new life accorded to the discarded fishing nets also brings to mind environmental problems and extinction of species and resources as well as the enormous potential of reuse and recycling.
