Biography

Born in Istanbul and trained as a painter, fiber artist Gulay Semercioglu weaves fine, colored wires into a dense mesh—from a distance her works look like Color Field abstractions, and the unexpected material is only apparent upon close inspection. Mounted on wood, the multi-layered wires are tautly bound to screws, whose placement determines gradations of tone. Despite the fact that she technically works in metal, Semercioglu calls her pieces paintings, citing the unifying effect she achieves through manipulation of material, color, and texture.
