Artist Biography:
Veryeri-Alaca's work has involves the synthesis of marbleizing paper with printmaking. She uses both the traditional Turkish paper marbling process, Ebru and the Italian intaglio process. Veryeri-Alaca describes her work as abstracted seascapes with some imagery from the land. "Forms from the Aegean Sea and Turkish cultural heritage form the backbone of my artwork. Configuration of the land and the sea has perpetually raised curiosity in me. How every wave affects and forms the others; how the living creatures and rocks are continuously sculpted by the tenuous movements of the water."
