Hakkı Anlı

There are  four  important  periods in Hakkı Anlı’s paintings. During his  years  in Turkey,  Anlı  worked  with  a sense of objectivity and  was  inspired  by  Cezanne  in  regards  to debth, color and volume wholeness. His portraits during this period went beyond the classical descriptive style and were rather directed towards the essential issues of painting. His different way of using  light  also  set  him  apart  from other artists.This  was followed by a period of cubism.He became one  of  the  most   prominent   representatives  of   cubism in Turkey. In   1954,  at  a  period   when  he   was   mainly concentrated on cubism and deformed painting style, he moved permanently to Paris. Afterwards, he turned completely into abstraction and worked in a geometrical abstract manner. During those years, he approached to forms shaped by “light”. In those works where he captures the “moment” of abstraction, the concept of light takes on quite important issues of painting.


In Anlı’s paintings, where above all, he opposes the abstractions created in the viewers’ minds by forming light filled surfaces, he also utilizes light carried on by colors. As mentioned above, this period has been a turning point in Hakkı Anlı’s art life. In his “New Figuration” period, besides the paintings where figuresare transformed into semi-abstract images, the artist, within a mystical space and without losing his awareness of the basic strenght of design, created mostly one colored figure arrangements. During this period, the figures are mostly nudes formed with patches of color. In the erotic scenes where sexuality is emphasized, he worked the male and female bodies with a dynamic blotting style and with a harmony and simplicity which does nottransform into a story.
