Since 2002, Koray Kantarcıoğlu has been working on series of abstract landscape drawings that take inspiration from geological processes, astrophotography and other natural phenomena. The basic element of the Bitmap Landscapes Series consists of the single pixel that is the essence of the whole. His only tool is MS Paint, a simple graphics painting software. Kantarcıoğlu continuously creates/recreates drawings in an open ended process. It is always a new version of a landscape that emerges, just like the natural processes themselves, both in their construction and erosion.
