"Ahmet Oran follows in the tradition of monochrome painting influenced by the Art Informel style. ... The essence of his painting is characterized by a quiet assertiveness, positioning him somewhere between Mark Rothko, Gotthard Graubner and Hubert Scheibner" (Peter Baum). Oran first studied painting in Istanbul and came to Vienna in 1980, where he graduated with a diploma under Adolf Frohner. His big breakthrough came in 1995 when he was awarded 2nd prize in a competition. Oran's work comes alive through the material texture of the finished surface. The reproductions, which demand exacting skills in lithography and printing, as well as sensitive graphic processing, have been carried out by Bohatsch and Partners, the well-known graphics studio.The book is not a comprehensive compilation of Ahmet Oran's œuvre to date, but an initial presentation of works bundled into fragmented groups, beginning with the current work cycles. The book concludes with a chronological illustrated listing of the pieces reproduced in it.
