Exhibition: PULSE Art Fair: Thumbnail

Uprise Art is proud to present new paintings from Brooklyn-based artists Aliza Morell and Senem Oezdogan motivated by light, color, and the juxtaposition of what the eye sees and what the mind knows. Morell’s recent series takes a visual cue from neon signs, creating lucid, colorful works where light appears embedded in the smooth black field of the canvas. Driven by color, these paintings reference the allure and romance of neon as well as a love-affair with painting itself. Similarly hard-won are Oezdogan’s Gradient paintings, which aspire to transform paint into light. Composed of geometric shapes, the work creates optical effects activated by the orientation of the piece, the position of the viewer, and the context of the work. These gradients generate a fluid, sculptural quality that alludes to the passage of light throughout the day as well as visual metaphor for changing states of mind.



  • Senem OezdoganBrooklyn, New York

    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.
