As an artist studied art and design both in Istanbul and San Francisco, worked both in commercial and academic field,
I have my inspiration from personal things, used and worn clothing items, packaging items, labels, old photographs, and ordinary things. The incidents they witnessed, our inner world and our conflicting passions with the outer world, the violence we faced to both physical and psychological, our emotional commitments, our roles and the drama of modern life with its consuming, exhausting, unstable condition. My art works present this condition; these momentary feelings and instantaneous involvements. I present the aesthetics of things while documenting them, presenting an opportunity for a moment of confrontation.
