"Neighbours' Laundry (detail)"
Esma Paça Turam uses silicone in a hot glue gun to create delicate, shimmering sculptures that are lacy and web like, inspired by raindrops flowing down glass. Turam loves the control that this material gives her and the fact that she can draw directly with it, creating intricate pieces that depict domes and bazaars, or simply neighbours’ laundry. Some of the detail in Turam’s work comes from having lived in Beijing and observed that no matter how little space there was, she was able to see the individual beings that made up the movement of the crowd.
