Preprint | 2023 | Yeditepe University Academic and Open Access Information System

In this research, the definition and the meaning of concept of emptiness will be explored, and the relationship between the concept of nature and the concept of nature by the effect of sky, mountain, road and sea images in landscape paintings will be researched. In this process, not only landscape painting but also the changing ways of looking at the landscape are included. The aim of the research is to examine landscape painting in the context of the concept of emptiness by looking at major artists, groups and exhibitions from a conceptual framework. An artist working in the field of landscapes, regardless of the focus of the subje . . .ct they are working on, first goes through a mental decision-making process. The artist's view of the landscape and the way they confine it within a delimited frame is subjective. Methodologically, this study is approached from two perspectives. The first is conceptual and the second is practical. Firstly, the conceptual framework on the subject was created and secondly, in line with the data obtained, the concept of emptiness and landscape painting in the course of history were examined formally, spiritually and conceptually in terms of selected painters and their works. The conclusion was that landscape paintings carry meditative elements that relax the mind in connection with the concept of emptiness and involve the viewer with the help of these elements Daha fazlası Daha az

Following an introduction to abstract art this thesis study focuses on the geometric abstract art which emerged with the onset of abstract art in three time periods. In the first section which encompasses a time frame of approximately forty five years between the onset of abstract art in the begining of the 20th century and the end of World War II it is discussed how artists like Kandinsky and Malevich made a difference by breaking off from the convention and thus contributed to the existence of the geometric abstract art. In the second section which covers a time frame between the emergence of a new world order following World War . . .II and the post modernism in 1980 the development phase of geometric abstract art is reviewed. Art movements such as Op Art, Minimalism and Colour Field Painting and the leading artists who enabled the development of abstract and geometric abstract art as a reaction to the totalitarian regimes of the pre 1945 period is examined. Also Turkish artists asscociated with geometric abstract art following affinity of Turkish art world with West after 1950 is reviewed. In the last section between 1980 and present the contemporary international and Turkish artists who do geometric abstract art is examined. It is pointed out that geometric abstract art at present is preserving its existence via internet and similar technologies and media applications in addition to conventional methods Daha fazlası Daha az
