“Characteristic of my (organic) formal vocabulary are anthropomorphic paintings and drawings that remind the viewer of organic growth. I'm interested in approaching the artistic process similar to how nature works. Not imitating nature and objects, but to observe the process that shaped/created them. It is a fascinating way to look at our surroundings, study form, and shape, and a reminder not to be too literal when using visual language.” — Senem Oezdogan
Senem Oezdogan (b. 1980) is a Brooklyn-based mixed media artist whose works meditate on the visual phenomenon of optical illusions through color and form. Smooth gradients give a sense of volume to the bold shapes depicted in Senem’s work that are subsequently flattened by her illusionistic use of spatial composition. Her color palette is equally beguiling, disrupting foreground and background and constantly forcing the viewer to reorient their sense of perspective.
