I am usually making oil paintings and sometimes making wall paintings with stickers.My work begins with questioning about the way to recall memory. Recalling something is an work of recomposing it. What we came to know and what we stated have an effect on what is recomposed. Past memories are distorted considerably in accord with their situation and concerns in the moment they are recalled. It is impossible to accurately return to a point of time and action because it is all too often added and mixed with other memories.. all images in my work are innumerably recomposed through the process of renewal and destruction. It expresses both the momentarily recognized sensation, like pressing camera shutter, and the perception that has long been observed and self-examined. I have a plan to make oil paintings and wall painting with stickers and show both together with digital drawings dealing with same memory. This can be revealed the different way to recall and vomit memory including being permanent and being transitory of images.
