Irfan Önürmen
Turkish, b. 1958
Follow

Irfan Önürmen explores the impact of mass media on the human psyche, in collages, paintings, and sculptures that draw from archives of images he collects from newspapers and magazines. In his “Gaze” series, the artist depicts familiar-looking faces that are composite images of figures found on the Internet, probing the disparity between real identities and their representations. Constructed from layered strips of soft tulle, the textured faces suggest digital pixels. In Panic (2009), stacked and glued newspaper sculptures form landscapes of images and erased texts so that relationships emerge between fragments of headings and images that address Turkish politics.
