Achieving images that evoke specific objects composed of irrational lines and scribbles is the common feature of her artworks. The outlines of obscure images, which are scraped into memory, become forms merging into lines that create the whole. The interaction of nature and the artificial world with the human being is taking on a new meaning, through imaginative and sometimes illusional abstractions. When they all come together as different scenes, they become representations of an imaginary world. This allows the viewer to create his/her own story in this imaginary world. The works in this exhibition are made up of free lines drawn with a needle point and drawn on a zinc plate using the gravure technique. New layers are formed with the fragile motion and tone differences of the lines. This approach questions the dominance, the oppression and the superficial aesthetic appearance of an image. Her first solo exhibition took place at the GOSB Techno Park in 2013, and she attended various group exhibitions internationally.
