In my current work process, I focus on the changing structures in our time. 

Something about the space in-between, the visible and the invisible.

I am interested to explore light with a composition of movement.

Simplicity of lines and forms that shape codes or an image.

This may result in abstract landscapes or conceptual drawings, 

bringing up a variety of patterns and dynamics.


These seemingly unstructured shapes of lines and colors might awaken a feeling,

 a memory of being a wanderer, a passenger, a migrant in time and timelessness. 

At the surface it may look undefined, looking deeper, layers of reflections are formed with much movement. 


Drawing materials, charcoal, ink and oil on paper or canvas are the mediums I prefer.
