Artist Statement:

My works are related to various objects which are based on the representation of concept. Chosen object acts as a single image and I believe that single image is more strong and existing. However, they look like they exist but in reality it´s the transformational process of form and material. The empty space of back side of silver piece or resin piece represents absence for me. I am interested in this kind of situation which has both faces - presence and absence-and finally it can be remained in a delicate space.
