Concepts such as spiritualism, subconscious, dream, identity, sexuality, social judgments and establishment and hierarchy between woman – man constitute the point of origin of my sculptures.

My sculptures appearing black – white (neutral), with the effect of the color used, reveal themselves much more striking and sometimes by forcing perception. The “eerie” (insecure) circumstance, arising especially with the effect of the red color used on every one of my recent sculptures, “irritates” theviewers. In my works I am showing tragic events, injustice, rebellion and despair, buried deep within the subconscious, from the eyes of a child,by using symbols which will make us remember these.

Thus, sadness, anxiety and fear comes up automatically and humanely when an innocent child is standing there before us wretchedly. At this point I am trying to confront the viewer with our feelings and past that we are all exposed to but ignore, do not embrace, cannot define and leave in the dark because we can not bring to light.
