My work is characterised by my interest in human relationships. We all are affected by relationships. They are a major aspect of social interaction. Every relationship develops our personality and helps us to realise our place in society and understand ourselves. My personal experience and its subsequent visualisation in materials are of the utmost importance to me, allowing me to express my relation to reality.

I am concerned with figurative sculptures devoid of any ideological and political indications or purely conceptual thinking. Thr ough sculptures I am trying to express the narratives that often draw on the memories and situations that seem to me paradoxical, absurd and in sol uble a nd I mostly examine the themes of the male world and its strategies. I draw ideas from my surroundings, from the past, from my childhood memories as well as from the history of sculpture. And I mostly examine the themes of the male world and its strategies.

The narrative has always been important to me as a basis for conflict its related emotion. I reflect on the situations that s hap e my value system.

The figures, embodiments of humans involved in ordinary life situations, draw attention to the current social situation – the po sition of people in society, their loneliness and confusion. The elements of morality attempt to teach and illustrate, in an unrestrained comica l w ay, difficult situations arising from the essence of human existence.
