Artist Statement
My work is a documentation of an image I obtained from daily life. It is about the space I live in and how the time develops in repetition.From is a living proof that’s made by my hand, sight and my sense. Therefore it carriesDiverse life’s surrounding ands organic relation such as a grape getting ready and reaching for his vine of the next world. Transmission, artificial image, vibration, laser, digital, simulation, ancient history, language, microorganism, relativism, sound, geographical quality, mobile communication, math and geometry, structure…etc is my motive. I consider ‘speech’ gives birth to sprit and sprit gives birth to image. The HI-TEC-C pen (made by Japan’s Pilot 0.3mm) and Canson paper (ten-meter unit) from France are used. The paper is rolled on a drafting table and I work stating from left to right (10cm less or more in progress everyday). The workspace is very confined and that’s reason is in that way, I can read an interesting book, knowledge, illustration, photograph and etc can be reached every second. These elements will direct/indirectly influence my work.
