In this research, the relationship between representation of Turkish art and representation is examined in terms of the main factors, general trends, styles and different expression forms that guide Turkish art. Representation from the early periods of Turkish art until the 18th century is a symbolic and iconographic character. The westernization politics of the Ottomans and the process of modernization have formed an illusionary, analogical representation of the similarity in art. Taking a stand against the imitation of the Turkish modern art of the Republic era, he advocates the view that art does not depend only on the external reality of the model. By using different artistic disciplines of contemporary Turkish art, a pluralistic, interactive production orientation ceases to exist in terms of the similarity between image, object, work and meaning; it is understood that the work is connected to the social consensus in the indicator series. Therefore, studies in contemporary Turkish art can be included in formal representation and new naturalistic representation.
