HER THOUGTS ON ART
In the modern world where mankind is very much intertwined with reality, the individual the artist
tries to break up from this reality. She performs her art by interpreting the problems of the world
from the perspective of her inner world and by the help of her imagination. Art sets out with colors
and textures from the artist to the world of reality to gain new meanings in individuals.
This period, the painter uses three main objects in her compositions: women, horses and keys.
According to the artist, as time flows in an infinite loop, every new emotion of soul experiences is a
new door. This experienced doors are a bridge to infinity or closed forever.
