Intro
With a diverse collection of more than 45,000 art objects and works of cultural significance, the Spencer is the only comprehensive art museum in the state of Kansas
 
The Museum’s vision is to present its collection as a living archive that motivates object-centered research and teaching, creative work, and transformative public dialogue. The Spencer facilitates arts engagement and research through exhibitions, artist commissions and residencies, conferences, film screenings, musical and dramatic performances, artist- and scholar-led lectures, children’s art activities, and community arts and culture festivals.


About the acquired works:
I work on 2 different styles, series.
Hommage~1 is made using by pulverization technique, formed more organic, and other series like Core 2, Stillness 3 geometrically formed.
"Hommage" series consists of 5 pieces, Hommage~ 1, 3, 6, 2, 4. When my father passed away I made these works as a tribute to him. "Hommage~1" is the first one. The "Hommage" series pieces are inspired by memories of my father, especially my childhood. And the numbers 1, 3, 6, 2 and 4 are his symbols.
"Core 2" and "Stillness 3" are made for my solo exhibition at Mobilia Gallery. Until then thin fine gold layer parts were mostly flat. From "Core" series it was rounded and formed, these textures and techniques evolved. These are the first works of a new expression.

About the Spencer Museum of Art collection
In 1917, Kansas City art collector Sallie Casey Thayer offered her collection of nearly 7,500 art objects to the University of Kansas to form a museum to encourage the study of fine arts in the Middle West. Her eclectic collection included paintings, sculpture, prints, drawings, furniture, rugs, textiles, metalwork, ceramics, glass, and other examples of decorative arts, primarily from Europe and Asia. The University of Kansas Museum of Art, housed in Spooner Hall, was established in 1928 based on this collection. Over the years the collection has continued to grow thanks to the generosity of benefactors and the expertise of curators.
The collection expanded significantly in 2007 when the Spencer Museum of Art assumed stewardship of approximately 8,500 ethnographic objects from the former University of Kansas Museum of Anthropology. The collection includes a variety of cultural objects from around the world, with a particular emphasis on Native American materials.
Today, the Museum’s collection exceeds 45,000 objects spanning the history of European and American art from ancient to contemporary, with broad and significant holdings of East Asian art. Areas of special strength include medieval art; European and American painting, sculpture, and prints; photography; Japanese Edo-period painting and prints; and 20th-century Chinese painting.
