Home stands at the boundaries of light, water, places or time, where there is no need to have a notion of the inside and the outside. Just as a creature in a shell can dream in its own shell, humans are instinctively looking for a place to call home. Our true home is our mother’s womb; a blessed place where everything is fulfilled and no distinction between the inside and the outside exists. This is where our dreams could live freely. Remembering this moment and place is an understanding of humans, human life and dignity, which is the main concern of my work.

Creating the feeling of home is a long path towards understanding human nature. It is about a belief in human life and dignity. I paint basic shapes, such as circles, triangles, or rectangles, to convey the primal emotion of home. The background of my work comes from my grandmother’s patchwork quilts, which I loved to play with when I was little. I paint my childhood memories, dreams, and wishes, by exaggerating or reducing the boundaries of objects. I lay a trail of breadcrumbs for the viewer leading to my home, illuminated by the silvery moon, so that they can reach their destination safely.
