“I have defined tight parameters for the work I make (shapes and colors I use) and I want to be able to translate my observations into an arrangement of shapes and compositions that feel complete... I’m interested in showing elements of reality we can observe anywhere – depth, flatness, tension, structure, color, and time. And to create compositions that manage to guide the viewer’s eyes across the artwork in a well-structured way.” — Senem Oezdogan
Senem Oezdogan (b. 1980) is a Brooklyn-based mixed media artist whose works meditate on the relationship between the aesthetic and functional value of an image. Influenced by architecture and the built environment, her fiber-based geometric studies feature straight lines and woven shapes that create depth and texture and convey a softness of fabric or tapestry. The artist’s works function as a vehicle by which viewers can observe the world through form and color. Oezdogan studied Communication Design and Illustration at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
