Hayal Pozanti created a new system of signs that, as the artist has said, starts from the premise of “squaring in the circle.” The result is a unique glyphic language comprising approximately 30 characters. Her work is a linguistic adventure through the color of association. Pozanti has had solo exhibitions at Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects; DUVE Berlin; and the Armory Art Fair with Jessica Silverman Gallery, New York.

About Hayal Pozanti

Hayal Pozanti paints colorful, abstract compositions featuring bold, interlocking, and overlapping forms redolent of machine parts and technology. In early work, Pozanti created digital collages, and she continues to address her fascination with the relationship between virtual and physical worlds in her GIFs and paintings. “To me, the world of the screen is an infinite universe of daydreams,” she has said. “Much like the Surrealists aimed to reconcile the world of dreams and reality, I would like to explore the possibility of inventing a new reality from the merging of the virtual and the tactile.”
