Senem Oezdogan 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 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.
In “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.”
