Bio

Raised in the suburbs of Boston as the first daughter of a Turkish mother and a Jewish father, Aylin has often found herself on the outside, looking in. Her mixed media paintings take an approach toward her subjects like that of a cultural observer or artistic ethnographer.  In her sculptural work she often uses lace and crochet - materials that show evidence of the hand and imply feminine sensuality. These are then translated into metals such as iron or bronze - important for their resonance and historical references to the deep tradition of cast sculpture.

With a BFA from Mason Gross at Rutgers University and a MA of Ed from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University, Aylin continues her artmaking practice while simultaneously working full-time as a nonprofit arts organization administrator, caring for her two young boys, teaching art workshops, and doing volunteer work in the community.
