Çiğdem draws / paints soundwaves and lightwaves; thus making the invisible visible within its movements and what it leaves behind as resonance by embodying it in lines and colours. This specific visual language is based on her experience in synesthesia, thanks to which she has created her own unique alphabet and employs it alongside all the other alphabets that she knows and is learning. Her art on paper and canvas using different techniques has featured in some collective exhibitions at some festivals and were exhibited in the context of her bookperformance events between 2011 and 2021. In 2021, her paintings of Gymnopédies (from Satie) were featured as part of BILY (Brussels I Love You) Art Walk that focused on young female artists from Belgium. This was followed by her A Love Supreme (from Coltrane) and Hallelujah (from Cohen) exhibitions. The Hallelujah series were created and sold in order to help improve the lives of children without families. Çiğdem’s act of painting and drawing is rather private, created in total solitude, as it requires intensive concentration. However, her live-painting performances, which are done in public, are especially social. Just like her books and performances praise co-creation, these live-painting events also invite and encourage others to become part of the artwork which is later authenticated by Çiğdem, in her solitude.
