ABOUT

Moving to Sweden from Turkey has had a big impact on my artistry. I have lost my language, my course and my reason, which has left me in an existential vacuum and consequently “isolation”, “time”, “being in between” have become recurrent themes in my art.

I use mediums to study grey areas that lie in between things, that are neither - nor.
