Artist Statement

I am a multidisciplinary artist exploring the subject of resolving interpersonal and personal emotional distress through a research-based practice. My process starts with a need for resolving or translating an issue occurring in my personal life in order to move forward or create a sense of communal understanding. I love showcasing vulnerability as a forefront. The initial thought is transformed through a research-based methodology, as I seek to enrich my knowledge, find all the possibilities, and investigate the wide field of its connections to then narrowing down to the new core that communicated between those finding in a contemporary point of view. I start my search in narrative works, literature, cinema and historical event, and then look into what other content they are able bring in the realm of sciences, innovation and cohabitation. Materiality is an important component of my practice. I choose to experiment with various mediums to find which might depict the subject in a more effective way. I have worked with drawing, fiber, projection, and installation. I am looking to find more enticing materials that seem progressive in assemblage which offers a sense of progression. The purpose that I am seeking is to trigger an ambivalence in the viewer’s experience with a blend of personal, analytic and universal feelings.
