This text is a verbal reflection of the works I had done during my MA education at Sabancı University. My aim is to give a brief idea of my working process and to spotlight my inspirational sources.

Every painting has its own theme and different channels however they are all connected. Connection exists mainly because they are all made by me and they are like memoirs of mine. In that sense we may call them autobiographical works.

That is why I would like to take one step back while examining them and leave space for the imagination and/or personification of the reader.
