Boulder-based sculptor Belgin Yucelen was kind enough to answer our questions about her participation in Boulder Arts Week, and her work in general. Here's what she had to say:

Describe your work in 10 words or less:

Human figure and narratives coexist together with my perceptions.


Tell us about one of your favorite encounters with art in Boulder:

Margarita Blush's adaptation of The Crane Wife, produced by Now or Never Theatre as part of the Boulder International Fringe Festival.


If you could collaborate with any artist in Boulder, who would it be and why?

I would possibly collaborate with a 2D artist in Boulder. For example, Karen Divine’s magical work would compliment my figurative sculptures very well.



What will you be doing for Boulder Arts Week?

My Bronze sculptures will be shown at the SmithKlein Art Gallery during Boulder Arts Week. These figurative pieces created during the last three years represent a journal of a philosophical journey through the most essential elements of life. I aim to have viewers step out of time and question the basics in their lives.



Then what?

A few of my sculptures will continue to be shown at the SmithKlein Gallery after Boulder Arts Week. In August I will be showing at the Loveland Sculpture in the Park Show.
