Artist, belonging to whichever era or period, feels, perceives and is willing to publish humane values via work of art. By this point of view an artist tries to let his readers feel the realities of the society he lives in and the realities of the work of art in his aesthetic perspective combining it with narrative aspects of tragedy or conflict. As the primary addressee of the work of art, the reader acquires a lot in accordance with the strength of the ties between the text and his journey facing his self realiance moving away from this relative authenticity. Hüseyin Rahmi Gürpınar is one of our writers publishing works of art in view of this interaction summarized as artist, work of art and the reader.
