My works explore the complex psychology in pursuing between solitude and relationships.
Based on personal experiences, I create scenes in which figures are passive and detached, not fully involved in events due to their inner conflicts.
Such ambivalence is visualized through the practice of painting, playing with relationships between forms and colors: juxtaposition of architectural elements of interior spaces with amorphous shapes or figures; usage of hues and tones of colors to concur and contradict to specific emotions.
It is a process of confusing the pictorial space, to employ unclarity as that of a person’s complicated mind.
