I like to work with daily objects and everyday detritus as artistic materials.These are always around my daily life. And so this forces me to see them in various ways. This compels me to change their form or texture and transform their function. Through the process of my artwork and exploring these materials, I can refresh my view of life and my every moment is preserved and recorded.
Currently, I work with receipts as my primary medium. Receipts, collected daily, can be transformed from their function as trademarks and everyday detritus to something that captures and stops a specific moment. Texts and images and any other remaining part become formative elements of composing my work. These works become an abstract version of a still life or landscape through which the viewers can see a particular moment in their own lives.
In my work, what I saw is not exactly what you see. But what you see is exactly what I made
