Life has always seemed to me like a plant that lives on its rhizome.
Carl G. Jung
Deeply influenced by Carl Jung and Abstract Expressionism, I am interested in connection with people in subliminal level. I imagine having invisible rhizome nourished by memories dreams, flashes of images and ideas stored deep under the ground which is connecting with others to share emotion or beauty regardless of locale, age and race.
Painting is for me is a journey to my rhizome, to discover how all my perception and experience have blended. It is then drawn to construct almost emotional landscape because it is built on structure, movement and special composition.
Drawing is essential in my work which allows me to dig deeper, moving through the surface tracing movement and creating depth. Painting with oil, ink and other water based paints creates various reactions and effects. These lines and paints overlap to reveal all my process without erasing them. The physicality of drawing and painting, in immersing my whole body in the work is fundamental; it also gives audience to experience the sense of being drawn into the piece.
Mylar provides great surface for drawing and its lightness, luminosity and airiness is like no other.
When mounted on wood panel, its’ grain can be seen through the blank (unpainted) surface to create refreshingly organic effect.
