O by Ozkaya


O has all the hallmarks of Ozkaya’s oeuvre: humor, daring, and a complex, philosophical conceit — how do you really know where you are, or what is real — imagined in the simple, ephemeral form of a bubble. And again, the echoes of art history: during the 17th century, the theme Homo bulla est (man is a bubble) was popular among Dutch masters. These paintings, created by Rembrandt, Jacob Van Loo, and others, depicting Cupid or putti or human children blowing bubbles, conceived and understood as vanitas images, reminders of the brevity of life.” Alice Gray Stites, Curator 21c Museum
