painter, fiber artist, drawer
Senem Oezdogan’s practice spans painting, fiber art, and drawing. Working with different materials allows her to discuss formal qualities on different surfaces. The reality of texture, time and surface is shared across all mediums but perceived differently in each one.
Moving between geometric and organic abstraction her work explores the creation of spatial relationships within anthropomorphic and biomorphic systems. The seemingly invisible get magnified and transformed into objects of abstraction that are rooted in the real world but are removed from their context existing purely as shape, form, and color. Reoccurring themes are architecture, the human body, and condition as well as the transformation of paint into light.
