Senem Oezdogan is a Brooklyn-based painter whose practice includes painting, drawing, and fiber works. Her work focuses on the exploration of the transformation of paint into light and the creation of three-dimensional reality on a flat surface. Her most recent paintings are composed of geometric shapes, using convex and concave elements. The smooth waves of gradients enveloping the surface generate the illusion of movement and depth. Playing with the juxtaposition of what the mind knows and the eye sees, these forms are perceived as three-dimensional objects which create an anthropomorphic and biomorphic system of relationships that evoke to the human body and nature as well as architecture. Like stand-alone objects, they occupy the viewer’s space and seem to continue beyond the canvas where shape turns into form, form turns into volume and volume turns into emotion.
