Artist's Statement :

My practice is based on bringing new life to old structures instead of tearing them down, creating art out of what many might consider trash. I work with something which is readily available in nearby surroundings, mainly discarded materials of everyday life, like fabrics and plastics that were already produced and neglected by others. I work with the existing to create something new. I observed the human psychology behind such materials and started working on my own understanding 'why we discard something?'. Reasons like a tattering, hole in the cloth, thread out and used things like a bandage used for a single time to name a few. Rawness of rusted structures, discarded fabrics, used plastics inspires work language.
Working with the discarded material, I have noticed plastic is readily available in my surroundings. Exploring plastic as a medium adds new and bright colors to the visual, entirely different from fabric resulting in multiple possibilities in the current practice. I want to show the positive side of this material, which is barely noticed in the surroundings. I managed to collect those pieces and maintain the raw look, which was the identity of used fabrics and plastics and tried to shine a light on it using its inherent history, which can offer a strong starting point.
My process is not pre-planned but relies entirely on instinct. I'm committed to using only upcycled materials for my work.
