Field of Activity

Painting
Throughout her entire artistic life, Hale Asaf exhibited an inquisitive spirit. In the beginning, she adopted a constructivist design sensibility; and this sensibility merged with an expressionist outlook developed during her German period. During the time of her studies in Istanbul, in paintings produced with short, sharp brushstrokes and in her plein air studies, she did not revert to prior patterns.
During the Paris years, in the beginning, the artist studied and experimented with Late Cubism; she achieved a synthesis uniting what she had learned since the age of 14 with Art Deco's sinuous lines; and came to an artistic sensibility that was wholly her own. In the exibitions in which she participated in Paris, Hale Asaf received acclaim because of her individual, distinctive style.
