Artist Statement

The style of most of my works is rooted in abstract expressionism, which is my favorite style. In March 2019, I tried to combine abstract expressionism with surrealism, my favorite two, and as a result, a new style was created that I called "abstract expressurrealism". Color functions as the dominant expressive tool in my paintings, whose themes include the earth, movement and stillness, elements of urban life, and the human nature. Using specific movement and color composition to express the earth as the mother and cradle of mankind in an abstract form is a type of grounding. The contemporary man resembles Dr. Ryan Stone in Alfonso Cuarón's “Gravity” played by Sandra Bullock, who has been disconnected from earth, his mother and cradle, and lives a life of chronic stress and tension. I try to bond my audience to earth, and reintroduce them to serenity and security, which is idiomatically called grounding. The contemporary human has fallen apart from nature, and should return to this lost nature and support the planet earth. Still, I am not a naturalist. I used to be a naturalist, but now I look to the earthly life and human being as the most excellent manifestation of nature, and I follow modernism. However, regarding color composition I aim for color unity, and I derive inspirations from old masters.
