Ozlem is an international artist and a member of the Zonta Club who now lives and works in Adelaide. She studied painting, completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Suleyman Demirel in Turkey. Before becoming a full-time artist, she enjoyed an 18-year academic career as a lecturer in the Theatre Stage Design Department at the University of Dokuz Eylul in Turkey, where she attained a master’s degree and PhD. She has had a number of solo and group exhibitions in Turkey, Japan, Albania and Australia. Ozlem Yeni’s paintings and clay works can be found in private collections in many countries.
This series of artworks made by the artist after she moved to Australia in 2015. The figure motifs in any works are not characterised by any particular gender, age, religion, nationality or skin colour. They are symbols of flawed humanity and, as such, are the products of sensual reflection. The ground or background represents ‘life’, but time and place do not exist in any paintings even though the artist conveying the personal experience of a particular moment in time that links everyone…
We hope you and your company will give us the pleasure of having you at the exhibition opening.
