DescriptionMy work is guided by the love of painting and the experiments with paint materials. Painting became the source of my thought process and the way to navigate faith; I get inspired by my own and collective experiences. I start with mixing acrylic paint to make skins. I wait patiently for the paint to dry for a few days, and then I peel the layers and physically reshape the paint film. I think about how colors and shapes can symbolize and evoke indescribable feelings. I always refer to nature - as it is undoubtedly one of our greatest teachers and healers. I decide what kind of surface and shape it will take, and hope to implement the feeling of fresh, warm and kind energy.
