Artist's Statement :

Starting with myself, what I see, what I understand, what I accept, and most importantly what I do. I, as an engineering student previously, have always given priority to techniques, symmetry, balance and structural aspects of anything I perceive through my eyes. Thanks to my previous course, I am able to determine the crucial backs of any structure as well as the knowledge to sort things as they appear to me visually categorizing based on technical aspects. But what I got here is the tricky part. As I was speaking about my previous course, I must state what has changed during my bachelors. As I recall my days back, I found my previous knowledge to be very useful to fulfill my artistic needs. I finally understood the deep connection between aesthetics and mechanics.
My works are not just based on technical or structural aspects but also my realizations through reality. I generally find my subjects that are mostly related to me or somewhere affecting me by any means. We all know that we are undergoing a harsh time, but nothing ever stops completely and life always finds new solutions to find satisfaction. My works are the witness of the subtle changes that helped me recover; these are also a means to convey my reaction in response to issues that I face. The choices of selecting topics are as random as the agility of my mind.
Talking about inspiration, I have always been fascinated about things in nature. The simplicity and complexity, the symmetry and arrangements, patterns and colors. These things are considered to be the back of my work as I enjoy applying the minutes of details which seem interesting to me. I prefer clay to be the prior material when it comes to execution of works, not only as it is in our course, but I find it to be more naturalistic than anything. I try to test out the exact desired colors directly from nature. To be precise, the specialty of my work is to maintain a pattern as I study deeply about patterns and arrangements.
