    This work aims to transform the way one sees sacred geometry through a traditional lens. It allows the process to take over and slow down. Once in front of the viewer, the past present and future become simultaneous. It allows the materials to speak for themselves, giving clues to the viewer as to how the work came to existence.

    Melih is a visual artist born and raised in Istanbul/Turkey. They currently reside in Bloomfield Hills, studying at Cranbrook Academy of Art. Their work captures an identity and diaspora through Islamic sacred geometry. They use printmaking as their main medium. Through abstraction their work explores a spiritual journey towards enlightenment, a complicated history of Islamic tradition and queer representation.
