“Murat Pulat mostly uses film images in his paintings. The films of Godard, especially have a privileged place in his work. At first glance, he particularly seems obsessed with the former model Anna Karina, “Cahiers de Cinéma” writer Jean-Luc Godard’s lover and wife between 1961-1965 (Anna Karina, named so by Coco Chanel, modelled for Coco Chanel and Pierre Cardin. A talent scout while sitting at discovered her Café Deux Magots one day but it was Godard who in fact directed her towards cinema), and the images of cinema stars in general. Pulat, makes a reference to the films of the 1960s by using black and white in his work.” – Ali Akay
