Artist's Statement :

Through my art practice, I am trying to study the different aspects of my surroundings, to understand those elements in depth. I begin my work with a reference to the real and the subject matter, but as I contemplate those elements further, there is only an essence of the shape. There are two aspects of magnification in my work- firstly, focusing on the details and close-up of the real element to the surface detailing and secondly, studying the same aspects in different ways and expressing my response to it.
My art practice is a means to manifest this response. I incorporate elements that reflect my consciousness emotionally and conceptually.
For instance, I like to store natural and organic objects. These are forms that have lost importance with time, but I see in them the existence of aesthetic shape and form. There, I am trying to draw a parallel between the real and the imaginary, to find what is more than what is real or real. Sometimes my approach also leaves certain gaps between my studies and they can be interpreted in different ways after creating the work. I am always exploring the material which is most relevant to the content and context.
