Artist's Statement

My works consist of emotions along with memories and traumas from my childhood.
I think things have two sids as front side and back side.
I strongly believe there are two faces in human emotion and they are not visible.

I create a lot of works related to circus.
Since I was a child I have seen many circuses, and all of them were different and unique but for me the unifying theme was frontstage and backstage, light and darkness.
I think circus has every gradation of feeling from joy to grief.
I represent my emotions to my works with various medium.

I often use wire to express my imagination.
Wire could be very playful, It moves spontaneously and drives my imagination far away.
