My Journey

My artistic path began in France, where I studied fashion at MJM and later delved into visual arts in UK. I then earned my Bachelor degree at Wolverhampton University and Master's in Visual Arts degree at the University of the Arts London, solidifying my passion for the visual realm. Exploring the Cosmos Since 2010, I visited The Smitsonian Institiun at Washington. Inspired by the Hubble and James Webb Telescope's imagery and the works of scientists, In 2018, I visited Sema Birler’s Labaratory at İstanbul University for examining cloning process. In 2021, I participated Mayes Creative residency colaborated by RAS. I also visited CERN. My art has explored the vastness of space and the profound mysteries of time. These encounters present an invaluable opportunity to engage with others, gain diverse perspectives, and delve deeper into my work. By systematically exploring and experimenting, I aim to discover and integrate new cultural elements, further enriching my artistic dialogue about science. Bridging the Gap Between Art and Science My artistic vision aims to bridge the gap between art and science. I believe in the power of art to translate complex scientific concepts into an accessible and engaging experience. Connecting Earth and Sky My artworks utilize natural materials like soil and linen, representing the Earth, alongside celestial imagery inspired by telescopes. Linen is the first plant that huan are used. This juxtaposition symbolizes our connection to the cosmos, highlighting the fact that, as Carl Sagan famously stated, "we are all made of star stuff." Process and Inspiration The subject matter of each work dictates my choice of materials and techniques. Each project often encompasses diverse creations, united by a central theme. Throughout the research and production process, new ideas emerge, guiding me towards the next exploration. My Artistic Voice I constantly seek to refine my artistic voice, focusing on color, light, and materiality. I experiment with washes of black to create my own unique hues, utilize complementary colors. I also delve into light theories, aiming to guide viewers' eyes through my creations.
