Semiha Binzet is a fan of İstanbul. And she loves the cats.You can often see these two subjects in her works.The person who has an endless love in the beauties, wants to have good things in her life.Artists are extremely sensitive to beauties.Recognizing these people who are different from other members of the community with their emotional structures, characteristics and works they create makes them easier to understand.
Sometimes a color, a texture, a sound or an event can affect the artist, revive her memories, and cause a feeling of enthusiasm and excitement with the love of creation.And it could trigger it.The artist who does not convey what her has seen, heard or heard in this act of creation; transforms the art into a work of art by seeing the events alone, not hearing.The creative person who integrates with her works naturally adds to her things other than herself and creates others. If we admire a work of art that is similar to the fact that something is not really concerned with the original, it is because of the others the artist adds to it. For this reason, art works have a great impact on people.
Semiha Binzet’s works have a great influence on people. Will continue to do.
