Senem Oezdogan

Design Within Reach presents works by Senem Oezdogan in collaboration with NYC gallery Uprise Art. Based in Brooklyn, Oezdogan is a 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 her work, which are subsequently flattened by her illusionistic use of spatial composition. Her placement of colors further disrupts foreground and background, inviting viewers to reorient their sense of perspective.
