Hayal Pozanti – Solo Exhibition
Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects
6006 Washington Blvd., Culver City
November 9 – December 21, 2013
Opening reception: Saturday, November 9, 6-8PM
Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects is excited to present new paintings by Hayal Pozanti opening on November 9, 2013 in the Project Space….
Pozanti’s abstract paintings are composed of opaque and suggestive forms; their scale inspired by the formats in which we receive digital images: the 4:3 ratio of iPhone screens and the 612 pixel square Instagram image. Before she turned to painting full time, Pozanti was making digital collages that directly referenced the visual culture of the Internet. The compositions in her current paintings continue to reference the layering and puzzling together of shapes that defined her collage practice, adding a new attention to materiality.
Hayal Pozanti is a native of Istanbul who received her MFA from Yale University in 2011. Her practice encompasses painting, sculpture, collage as well as digital animation. Through these varied platforms, she explores questions of technology and language systems, as well as the possibilities of space mapped out by the body and screen. Hayal Pozanti has exhibited at Jessica Silverman Gallery in San Francisco, Duve, Berlin and at Brand New Gallery in Milan, Italy. She currently lives and works in New York, New York.
