Artist statement

During my undergraduate study, I have endeavoured to portray the portrait of the individual trying to cope with existential concerns in my work. As a consequence, my undergraduate thesis is based on the notion of melancholy. In my next studies I have also been on the road from the individual and the individual. The contradictions that the individual has experienced in the process of existence have caused the emergence of paintings like "centrifugal ".
In addition to my oil painting, I also created imaginary spaces for a collage work. I tried to create spaces where I could breathe in and empty in there. These studies then left their place in realistic cityscapes, stack cities. I wanted to emphasize the destructive existence in a more tangible way, and in doing so I could not deny the historical process, the ancient structures, of humanity.
