Artist Statement

Through my paintings I express my view on life to the point of exposing my innerself. I began with inquisitiveness towards natural phenomenon and level kind of metamorphosis of ideas and art languages various images by painting, sculpture, printmaking –my own portrait. Superimposed several layers of forms and figures create a motives and symbols play an essential part in shaping in my works. Clearly seen in, I use of embroidered textiles images and floral forms and mythic references. I express a respect for the distinctiveness of the culture I explore. The result are painstakingly detailed drawings and vibrantly hued paintings that reveal themselves over time and reflect profoundly on the relationship between the present and the past and the richness of multicultural identities – reform myself. The observation extends to all of life in the process ,I realized that there is this particular point where me and my alter-ego stand together reflecting each other like a mirror and that is the very point where true life of a person is grasped - my self examination.
