Destruction / Debris
“As a theme I use photography deformation, creating forms , attitudes aimed at acquiring a new language to display constitutes by the use of my practice. The concept is the development of ties between painting and experimental attitude which the photo associates, It focuses on behavior during experimental process. The purpose is not just about making a photo, but for you to see the time it took me to make the photo, see the manipulation, the deformation and the story it has behind it.
Chemical and inorganic materials are use to edit the photos by using various practiced technics. Our daily digital processing machines, fast and clear photos don’t give us the chance to be able to speak more artistically, still today, the photographic film is preferred, it is to achieve a unique and reproducible image results rather than intervention. Is to achieve a unique result.
Experimental and formed innovative concepts for reasons over which aimed to create a stand-effect relationship.
The result that I want to create is reached when photography leaves its essence and merges with the material, therefore I can call it destruction.”
