Artist's Statement :

For the past one year, the pandemic has channelised my practice into the medium of cyanotype and papermaking. I have been experimenting with the medium of cyanotype with different surfaces, mainly postcards that itself is a medium of absolute sharing and communication. While the drawing constitutes the basic representation of the image, cyanotype records a monochromatic trace or a blueprint.  Images or elements that I have used primarily are found objects that do share an ephemeral quality representing life and personal identities. Cyanotype images are further painted in order to increase the possibilities of the developed images. These images are my responses to life, spaces and objects that I continuously encounter in my daily life. ‘Today is her Day’ is a panel of 8 works that depicts the “special days” of a woman's life span. Women are considered as someone born with endurance and utmost tolerance in a way that she must be tolerant of whatever is happening in her life. Also they are being tied or knotted in a never ending loop of paradox and commitments. In this work, I try to represent such a loop of events in order to commemorate the life of a woman with whom I share the world with.
