Serdar Acar focuses the last fifteen months he has spent at home during the pandemic in his last series. Acar reflects on anxiety, loss and desires he has experienced during this time through his new painting series. He transfers outdoor images, which he calls “symbols of the uncanny”, using soft colors and simple language. In most of his compositions there are surreal figures positioned at the foot of his pink mountains or on green plains, and sometimes on the edge of a lake.
