In the artist's own words: “As any mariner knows, regular coats of paint help keep a boat afoat. These two little rowboats seem to be more paint than anything else – the neon colours create patterns of peeling layers that speak of their careers at sea. Tied up at the marine cooperative near Uskuoar, Istanbul, they cross waters sailed by vessels in ancient epics but they could be rowing anywhere in a world covered by water.”
