I present work that express ambiguous visual elements, trying to explore the visual language of the feelings they evoke in us, by expressing the meanings it holds , such as visual language of form through the usage of colors , lines , shapes and textures to create a composition that could reflect different feelings , spirituality , beauty , ugliness and impermanence everybody can feel it in our contemporary life .
These are issues present in, and part of search of my abstract and conceptual work.
Much of my work is influenced and explores the depth of human experience, trials, movements, youthfulness and even the concept of simplicity. These explorations hope to bridge the everyday life we live and the imaginary worlds we each hold . connecting these two opposite worlds is what each artwork hopes to do . Most recently my work has taken a emphasis on social m political and cultural issues – After the 25th Jan, many social problems and phenomena appeared. This made me want to present m explores and think through the pathway for understating the connections we all share as humans , with nature m and the world that surrounds us .
This work, ongoing and exploratory, attempts to show the evolution and levels of relationships in which we are all caught.
