Trying to convey shadow, silhouette and contrast with a minimalist and surrealist style in her visual narratives in different disciplines, the artist bases her works on social issues such as values attributed to women, gender inequality and freedom, generally from a feminine point of view. At this point, the shadow and silhouette represent the woman, who is subordinated and neutralized in the society, as a metaphor. However, the silhouette in the narratives turns into a new formation that emerges from a sharp silhouette and begins to show itself.
