Cihangir Gümüstürkmen examines the underlying meaning of famous works of art, e.g. from the Renaissance, and his own foto collages with a light touch thus revealing his own world view.

In his series "Ecnassianer" – paintings in acrylic with mirror film on canvas – he replaces the faces depicted on well-known masterpieces of Renaissance painters with mirror film as for example in da Vinci's "Lady with Ermine" and Boticelli's "Birth of Venus". This technique places the observer in the centre of the painting – the reflection turns the observer and his surroundings into a part of the work of art.
