Statement

My work is about cultural and social layers that we wear almost like clothes.Our mind, which is layered with social, cultural and gender beliefs, has been the most important concern underlying my art practice. We almost wear these beliefs in order to attain the typecast of a successful social being. Can there be thought or action outside this mental structure? My work attempts to express as well as question this. Under this mask another mask, I will never finish removing these faces (Claude Cahun)
