In my opinion, modern man has lost himself in the middle of nowhere, a place in which violence governs. Hence, I elaborate this by creating hollow spaces as well as sociological features in my collages, the perfect technique to show meanings of the modern world. I also look for common “collective memory” that could convey the same meanings for everyone; memories that pass through national and cultural boundaries throughout the world. Violence, loneliness, and vanity are subjects that everyone faces in his/her life, nowadays.
I’ve illustrated the tragedies of the modern world by highlighting them, while keeping a vague past in background. My works reject an explicit explanatory strategy. I offer viewers a key to find their own personal interpretations to the feelings that I’ve conveyed in my collages and oil on canvases.
My own psychological makeup, to a large degree, determines the nuances of tones I decide to use in my oil on canvas and collages. I develop a painting’s texture by representing the conflicting relationship between content and form.
