11th Day of Christmas: Collecting Hayal Pozanti's Colorful Abstracts

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Gregory Disney-Britton
Gregory Disney-Britton holds his 11th Day of Christmas gift by Hayal Pozanti, a  two-color lithograph created in 2014 at the Tamarind Institute. 
On the 11th Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, a signed limited-edition print by Hayal Pozanti. Born in Istanbul, Turkey in 1983, today she lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. Pozanti paints colorful, abstract compositions featuring bold, interlocking, and overlapping forms redolent of machine parts and technology. Represented by Jessica Silverman Gallery, her work is in the permanent collection of the Broad Art Museum in Los Angeles, and other museums. Today's gift is from a suite of lithographs by visiting artists at the Tamarind Institute.
Pozanti made her first lithographs during her first residency at Tamarind in 2014. She returned in 2018, creating an exquisite set of monotypes as well as a limited edition
