ABOUT

In the work of the artist, the acts on which the ordinary set of actions relating to our daily life is based are constantly repeated within a particular system, exceeding their original meaning and becoming abstract forms. On the other hand, as a result of the movement, the residues and traces of the material used are revealed by changing shape, keeping a sort of record of the action, containing hints of timeliness and intensity. She has been working on similarities and differences in repetition, time experience, sound, rhythm, and trace depending on the action, especially in her recent period of work. The repetition creates the ground for the artist where the past, memory and identity are built, while the repeatedly revealed rhythm, sound and abstract forms, on the other hand, open up a space that can be experienced intuitively and physically.
The patterns artist creates are the result of focused repetition. The patterns formed by the unit replications of graphite pencil on paper, blackened in different directions, come and go between the black spot integrity and a multiplicity where each unit is seen individually. In addition, a meditative experience that completely changes the perception of time during production is inevitable.
