Oil paintingOf course the larger scale works require long commitments. The way she combines colors is sometimes very classical, but she does not forget small touches, splattering and spreading her paints. She established a very live area on the canvas. Her compositions are solid and we observe different setups in these network of relations: Chairs, tables, references to the sunset and so on. The artist sometimes dreams of venues, cities, people and their stories but all these are hidden behind the colors, the folds of the texture and even behind the painting itself. This is the adventure of those on the canvas; the balance of things established through the production of squares, circles, parallels, crosses and reproduction thereof with paint and other materials. Thus, Özalp has painted "Ağacın Sesi" ("Tree's Voice"), "Hedef Kim?" ("Who's the Target?"), "Sunak" ("Altar") and "Yol Ayrımı" ("Crossroads") in an aesthetic area shaped with these concepts.
Acrilic, oil painting collageAnother very unique characteristic of the artist is her fondness for fabrics, needlework, and embroidery. Such fabrics and embroidery are symbols of domestic chores, of life itself and the values of the middle class. And the artist right at this point is also close to popular culture as she is interested in images, objects and certain attitudes that get lost in daily life. Life includes variety, and just because the richness of images makes one's head dizzy, being attached to a certain point is like being thirsty on purpose. The artist wants to do what she wants as much as she can; she is against classifications or being put into categories.
