"I question the reality of faces and expressions. The "Numbness" you see most of them makes sense and sounds real to me. I use yarn in portraits. Yarn is a means of protest for me. I'm making the feeling I want to give with the threads. As a technical material, I don't keep it separate from paint and canvas. Yarn was like a bond in my life. I'm hooked up, I can't get off. It'll be better if I break it. Maybe I shouldn't."
- Ali Özkayın (Yarn Man)
Özkayın opened his first solo exhibition in Denizli in 2015. The artist, who participated in many group exhibitions, continues his productions in his workshop in Denizli.
