Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects is excited to present new paintings by Hayal Pozanti opening on November 9, 2013 in the Project Space.
Pozantis abstract paintings are composed of opaque and suggestive forms; their scale inspired by the formats in which we receive digital works: 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.
Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects is located at 6006 Washington Blvd in Culver City, 1 block west of La Cienega at Sentney Avenue. Gallery Hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am – 6 pm and by appointment.
