My main interest in arts lies in the exploration of personal and collective memories, as well as the process of understanding symbols. Through ancient myths and religious stories, the majority of my works revolve around our connection to the legacy of our ancestors. Throughout my artistic journey, I have placed great emphasis on family memories, village life, and folk art. However, my most recent work delves into the sacred and the profane, life and death, ancient symbols and our broader relationship with them, often presented in an ironic and grotesque manner. Besides painting, I have always been intrigued by other mediums, thus I frequently express these themes through installations, videos, graphics, and, most recently, ceramic art. Additionally, I am also interested in conceptual thinking and text-based art. Language plays a significant role in my artistic approach, which is particularly evident in the titles of my works.
