My main concepts are technology, life and death, mortality, time, identity. Generally, I am working gouache, ink and oil painting. My works are about the societies created by technology. It’s an utopic world I am creating. Organs are being made and there is no concept of time. I am symbolically determing the good and bad sides of these things in my work and I put them together in an empty space. My drawings are like a researcher’s notes, you can think of them as visual representations of ideas.
