Artist Statement

My art works explain nature, time and space. And I also try to show the lifestyle of people and their beliefs. Whatever I have experienced, I try to express through my artworks. I use some forms in my works which represent my identity, dream, relation and memories.
Time and surroundings play a major role in my works. I have always tried to play with space and I think wide and flat space creates a new dimension for me. In a wide space I see so many questions, directions and possibilities, whereas flat space always questions me.
