1983 Born in Istanbul

In my works "the body" is in the foreground. From time to time, although my focus is on the female body, this is an atmosphere that reminiscent of the depiction a nightmare rather than a fascination object. When I use the body I sometimes glorify it and sometimes I exhibit as a part of grotesque fiction. Some of my paintings the figures are thoroughly appeared in but some of them emerge as the mythological reflections. On the other hand, in the serial of my works, it can be seen the deformation of the body traces despite the all recognisability: as stretched, overextended and distorted. Therefore, I explore the details and the traces of many parts of the whole body. Every piece of the body that I use in my works represents a quest for identity. All these are intended to give doubt and uncertainty to the followers as it is not intended to give pleasure. In fact, when we questioned the concept of the body, we are also questioned all the other concepts, such as curiosity, questioning, psychological and physical identity and a sense of unease.
