Precise reasons seem to be necessary to express some issues at some particular moments.
Such thoughts inspire me to make paintings.
It looks often not practical to resist or transcend situations that are believed to be unethical uncontrollable and painful. There is no real escape. People often try to wash themselves off finding silly but useful means to escape with minimum injurious, In their schemes of imagination, ‘the others’ in the society are doomed to feel responsible, thus we close all exits and escape routes. We give in to compromises preserving our convictions formed with reason. One can’t open up to one’s conscience. Our topics are not grave enough. They are not lucid and clear. Secrets are not always safe. In some unguarded they reveal themselves. So one can express them in painting. The changes and their continuity in my surroundings are to be searched and found out in my paintings.
I am using those forms shapes lines and colours that are representative of tensions and worries of our time. Nobody might deny the heights of magnanimity. But how will we look at the terrible deviance in the path to sublime heights?
I wish my works pass though those intentions that realize the inability of man to restore organic essence and beauty, but deserted while taking their painful paths.
