The first impression, looking into my paintings is my ability and efforts in creating a stable and steady composition. My painting world offers poetic and dreamy environment while strongly resists sentimentalism and fleeting emotionalism and keep its distance from falling into a purely romantic and thoughtless state. Visual rhythms and formal swings are the most important features in my paintings composition. In this process, something like the futurist behavior with figure is formed and an alternate movement possesses the canvas and the viewer's eye.
Objects and figures are in distance, taken away, they are flying or are seen in a colorful outer space. In creating my paintings, I benefit from an applicable exciting visual expressive language and line orientation and forms are more important than coloring. My coloring palette is not so diverse, but my dancing and intensity of brush in canvas beside sharp contrast and taking advantages of white areas in my canvas play a leading role in creating an epic and influential painting.
Although my painting world clearly indicates a figurative look into my subjects, but in some of my works the border between figurative and abstract is very narrow and it creates a new space between Figuratism and Abstraction. In this atmosphere, a bird flies faraway, a rigid and silent figure moves and in another place and a flowing spirit passes a silent and steady body.
It seems that my works with a symbolic expression show the distance and closeness of body and soul.
