I observe the visual situations that surround me, which are created by human activity or by nature and which contain some kind of aesthetic quality or problem. I look at these as marks which tell stories of their own formation. They preserve something unknown and hidden which is beyond its own existence.
The way lights and shadows activate a wall as a painterly surface, the way water finds its form as the pavement is drying, or the surface of a billboard as it is destroyed by the weather is what serves as a starting point in my work. These everyday visual phenomena remind me of the process of making art.
My aim is to capture, preserve and recreate these found situations. I materialise them in different media based on the character of the subject. I leave marks on the diverse surfaces by printing, pouring, gesture painting, building and destroying collage-layers, sculpting and by taking photographs.
Through my artistic practices, I look for art in reality and reality in art, which leads to the intersection of art and the aesthetic reflection on everyday visual happenings. The examined spectacle and the depiction becomes interchangeable. With this intermediary approach, my art continuously shifts between art and life..
