Old Town Alexandria in the Moonlight
Sermin Ciddi is a renowned Turkish artist skilled in modern miniature (minyatur) painting, one of the highly specialized visual arts of Ottoman and Turkish culture along with calligraphy (hat) and marbling paper (ebru). Born in Istanbul, Ms. Ciddi takes inspiration from a variety of sources: places she has lived and traveled to, the architectural salience of each location, and finally, their interaction with surrounding nature. Depictions of environmental themes and imagery through symbolism are recent additions to her existing portfolio. Scenes including Alexandria-Virginia, Ottoman and Turkish architecture, and the enduring relationship between dragons and phoenixes come to life on her canvasses. Her new line of artwork covering Alexandria, is the product of six months of research, composition and painting.
