once upon a time

Ozden Dora Ergun A ripple in the water, a cloud of volcanic ash, the darkness of a fairy tale, a pattern on a piece of textile, or in the sky, are all sources of inspiration for my work. My current exploration of drawing is underpinned by the translation of stitch into mark on paper. The repetitive nature of the process allows me to daydream in peace, to extend the instant a little and to capture fleeting sensations and memories. The process is also a re enactment of a cyclical battle between: obeying and rebelling, structuring and distorting, neatness and accidents, contemplating and acting, planning and intuition, parts and the whole. Enhancing this is my current mark of choice: the circle. A half moon inside a circle, circles within circles.
