Statement

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

"Prints are unique works of art because one has to envision the finished piece before one even begins. I feel like printmaking is a game or puzzle composed of differently shaped pieces and colors which fit together to form a completed design. I work with linoleum and wood blocks to create visually abstract and decorative prints that are evocative of both my Turkish roots and urban sensibilities."


BIOGRAPHY

Eda Erdik earned a bachelor's degree in graphic design from Yeditepe University, in her native Istanbul, Turkey in 2004. Working with computers and software programs for graphic design, she grew to feel an increasing disconnect between herself and her art. It was then when she began to explore the world of printmaking.

In 2008 Eda decided to make the move to New York City and enroll in the prestigious Art Students League. There she found a community of artists and instructors that allowed for the opportunity to combine soul, body, and mind expressed through the fulfillment of her prints.
