Gizem’s illustrations exist in a space between the abstract and the literal.
Recognizable human figures traverse impossible geographies and interact with
symbols reminiscent of Kandinsky’s study of pure, non-referential objects. She uses
squares to represent either portals between spaces, or the passage of time as in
the frame of a comic book, or a combination between the two. Her work manages
to be extremely interpretive without feeling inaccessible, inviting viewers in with
welcoming color palettes and the soft textures of colored pencil. Get lost in her
incredible art for this month’s volume.
