Ayşen Orhon is an artist living and working in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
Subtraction is a huge motivator for Ayşen Orhon; Because as her work effectively shows, less is sometimes (always) more. Amidst what is usually a stark palette of white, Orhon reveals little pops of unpredictable color. A knotted tangerine string in a white paper bag, a strip of neon pink tape on the side of a painting, a loop of silver tinfoil around a ring of twisted fabric. Simplistic and minimal, Orhon ironically shows us that you can gain something from what is otherwise a reductive approach.
STAY TUNED FOR A Q&A INTERVIEW WITH THE ARTIST THIS WEEK!
