“When I start to make my first touches on the blank canvas, I visualize the final state of the painting. Although certain differences develop during the production process, I am not far from the end that I originally dreamed of. The ideas that I think of during the production phase of one work become the subject of my next work. Although I have turned to painting more in recent years, my work on sculpture has also intensified with the desire of three-dimensional solutions that develop within myself. My priority in sculpture art is to be able to carry the intensity of color in the painting to my sculptures. Some techniques and materials that I have found by trial and error accompany me to probe the subject and continue with my story.”
