Onomatopoeia: Works by Derya Kadipasaoglu @ Hibbleton

September 22, 2018 in Downtown Fullerton Art Walk

You are cordially invited to the newest art exhibit at Hibbleton Gallery, entitled “Onomatopoeia” featuring works by Derya Kadipasaoglu. The opening reception is Friday, October 5th from 6-10pm during the Downtown Fullerton Art Walk. As always, this event is FREE and open to the public.

Artist Statement:

It’s thrilling to discover a sprawling root system connecting thoughts that appeared to float like lily pads on the surface of a pond. Some ideas are associated by only a wispy tendril or two; others, entangled by dense dendritic ropes. Yet everything, once revealed as related, seems obviously and necessarily so. My artwork is my way of exploring these connections: the relationships between my physical and mental experiences, how they are often erroneously categorized as separate in kind, and how introspection and attention shows their unity.

Artist Bio:

Derya hails from Houston, Texas, where she went to the High School for Performing and Visual Arts. She got her BA at UT Austin in Linguistics and Philosophy, then came out west to study Psychology at USC. With an MA under her belt, she decided once again to focus on her art. One of her greatest discoveries has been that dichotomies – science & art; body & brain – are an illusion. This idea permeates her artwork, and these days she can be spotted around LA, drawing, playing tennis, tending to plants, or romping around in the great outdoors.
