PENDULUM IRFAN ÖNÜRMEN
March 3– April 23, 2016
Opening Reception: March 3: 6-8pm
New York, NY (February 9, 2016) - C24 Gallery is pleased to announce Pendulum, a solo exhibition featuring all new work by C24 Gallery artist, İrfan Önürmen. The exhibition will be on view March 3, 2016 through April 23, 2016 with an opening reception on Thursday March 3rd from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.
Pendulum bears witness to the manifestations of Önürmen’s spiritual states. In this exhibition, the artist oscillates like a pendulum between his inner experience and the traumatic nature of current times. His work explores the dichotomy and discrepancies between personal and public experience as seen through the lens of contemporary media and it’s effects on the human experience.
With a unique aesthetic approach comprised of layering tulle and textile materials, Önürmen creates a mysterious tone in each work that explores the concepts of vulnerability, transparency, fragmentation and depth, in the pursuit of harmony and dissonance. With these themes in mind, the viewer is asked to question what is veiled behind each layer. Dual meanings such as order and chaos emerge in works that are at times sober yet playful.
