“In my art works I represent life and its surprises. I think realist based on biological facts. Still I find my subjects from the line between private and collective experience. My works can be figurative or abstract but each of them is also my self portrait. Through working I become aware of my own identity and life situation.
I use methods, materials and experimental items as tools. I select them considering what kind of result I want. My goal is to create esthetic and touching works. I work in series and try to surprise myself. After entitling them I do not like to explain my works.
I appreciate activity and cooperation. That’s why I am acting also as a curator on art fields. Besides art and exhibitions I am interested in literature, music and wild walking.”
