Blue Mosque canvas
There is a surge of restoration work for Mosques and churches in Istanbul. Thanks to big tourism, it's a global phenomenon that all famous, iconic buildings are undergoing such rejuvenation. Meanwhile it is not guaranteed that tourists can see the monument in its entirety. It is either blocked up here, or covered up there. We met this canvas at the courtyard before the entrance to the Blue Mosque. It is large in scale, realistic and surrealistic at the same time. Adding interest to the graphical facade are the numerous small cut openings. Maybe the holes are cut deliberately to let air go through. Or is it out of precaution so people won't bump into it? It might be a bit more convincible to think about it as an idea of revealing and concealing - bringing it all the more, attention.
