Artist's Statement :

My works are mainly concerned with the manifestation of multi-layered spectrums of our society and environment. The range starts from satirical comments on the hypocritical loopholes of our surroundings to lesser-known alternative mythology-oriented folklores, famous in regional pockets. At one glance, they can appear like a linear or multi-linear narrative-based structure based on figurative documentation. Still, a further investigation can reveal the under-toned subtle ambiguities which enable further dialogue with the viewer in terms of non-verbal interaction and interpretation. As far as the visual spectacles are concerned, my oeuvre can be considered populist in one sense, as I emphasize products that, to some extent, can communicate with the masses in terms of their language of presentation and affordability. Thus, most of my works are for personal viewing in a timely manner, where the scope of psychological interactions can travel through a metamorphosis of formative narrative statement to abstraction. Another primary objectivity of the works is the de-structuration of the aura of the originality of a print. From this notion, I often use conventional printmaking mediums like Intaglio prints, Woodcuts, Lithographs, or Serigraphs for my publications, in the context of the identities of these mediums in the alternative reproduction market, which was once mainstream in terms of history. I think that the value-objectivity of the works is the basic armature upon which experimentation with format and medium plays the role of the nerves and muscles.
