I can see why she is orange. There are some people who get lost in their dream world. Sometimes for months and years… But the day comes when this ‘being lost’ is turned into reality. It is really something big to be able to come back to life after many dreams. Zeynep Solakoğlu has made an inspirational work from an eight-year period. I found something for myself on every page of her book “Orange Girl”, which is on my desk right now. The strength of love, the importance of the childish part of me, realization of my ability to find light through darkness…

I was impressed by this quote in the beginning of Zeynep’s story.

“Your mind makes out the orange by seeing it, hearing it, touching it, smelling it, tasting it and thinking about it. But without this mind –you call it- the orange would not be heard or smelled or tasted or even mentally noticed. 
It’s actually the orange depending on your mind to exist. Don’t you see that? 
By itself it’s a no-thing, it’s really mental, it’s seen only of your mind. It’s empty & awake.” Jack Kerouac

Zeynep wrote stories and drew since her childhood. Her drawings are very detailed and breath taking. The story told in between the black&white drawings of this book is about the newly university graduate Zeynep who doesn’t know what to do, confused and in the air; the Orange Girl. 

“Orange Girl” is now in Sanayi 313…
