Turkish artist Murat Pulat’s first solo show in New York City was on view at Leila Heller Gallery in Chelsea earlier this year. Image-Animal featured 10 paintings depicting iconic scenes from old Hollywood movies, New Wave French films, and 1960s television shows. A three‐dimensional painting installation by Pulat was on view in the Gallery’s front windows. A fully illustrated catalogue with an essay by Emre Zeytinoğlu accompanied the exhibition. Using oil on canvas, Pulat transforms the silver screen to a work of fine art. Screen sirens such as Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, and Mia Farrow grace Pulat’s canvases in the form of richly toned, textured paintings.
