Natalie Ossa uses the word Eesome, meaning “Pleasing to the eye” to describe what she strives to achieve through her linear artwork. Influenced by geometric patterns and the exploration of the human mind, her focus is to attain a rhythm to her artwork. Creating movement with the eyes and giving the spectator a gratifying sense achieved through patterns. Interested in natural elements and neutral tones she works primarily with wood and monochromatic color schemes from her studio in Toronto.
As an artist, I thought how many ways could I play with lines? Our human mind is strangely satisfied when we are able to distinguish a certain rhythm through repetitive patterns. I find it very important to bring out that sense of gratification from repetition to the viewer through the use of geometric line placement in my work.
Using inviting geometric patterns, monochromatic tones and a natural material such as wood keeps the artwork at the most basic level of structure. Creating movement by using lines, a basic element of art that allows the eyes to be pulled into different directions.
I continue to explore the simplicity of geometry that is inviting and balanced, not overwhelming. I allow my instincts and intuition to take over with each piece, letting the laws of geometry to take over.
