Artist Statement

I delved into my art practice which involved the discovery and exploration of the details of everyday life, with the ‘essence of living’ being the foundation of my studio practice. The ordinary yet ignored objects or activities from daily life play a role in my study and I try to stimulate reflections through art making processes. And by projecting the subject matter I am studying through various materials, enabled me to create multiple forms of unique visual language for my work.

My work lies between systematic and non-systematic processes produced within a determined time and space. Incorporating both the conscious and unconscious mind, I allow various forms to take place in her work, juggling between drawing, painting, and printmaking on different materials, like paper, canvas, ceramic, and daily found objects.

‘We blindly repeat our daily life, and doing this for a prolonged time may lead to a subconscious act as the brain works by itself without us noticing that it’s working’, this is the inspiration to the study of the works in ‘Line and place’ series, which shared the idea of how repetition could creep in automation and while continuously doing meaningless things for a prolonged time, the process determines and its value is interpreted.
