Statement

My work is a visual diary where I explore the longing for the once present intimacy and desire. By playing with the viewpoint or putting the viewer in my own spot my desire is to hold on to and observe being myself and indulging in that moment. Like the fragmented scenes from our memories, I use cropping and color to capture the feeling of the moment.

Seeing evidences in details I use these suggestive and ordinary details that trigger my memory. For example the room, with its walls and specific objects become the witness and gains a personality describing its occupants.

I find that the human condition and endless search for an ideal are the only constant things while going back and forth between two different cultures and geography. I try to depict our need to love, trust and be desired, from a woman’s viewpoint while exploring coexisting together in a space, being a couple; being comfortable and playful in each other’s company on a slow lazy day. As mystery and humor are the elements I enjoy including in my work, the tensions and possible tendencies, inevitable conflicts, the ambiguity of relationships that continue to haunt us lay also always at the brink. 

My starting point has always been the hope, freedom and recklessness behind starting all over, and the power and warmth I get from the memories. I believe all the interactions and stimulations brought by my passion for relocation, and longing for what was left behind constantly feed my creative process.
