"My work explores various themes ranging from personal experiences that I gather from traveling journeys since childhood. Growing up as a mixed race of half Turkish and half Pakistani, I am exposed to various cultural perceptions and views while adapting to many different cultures, languages, and people. This has allowed me to see both the Asian and Western perspective and get used to them very quickly. My approaches to art making are detailed and abstract, with a representation of nature. As a landscape artist, giving my works meaning is essential in connecting with my audiences, as they are related to my personal identity. Engaging with local artists in my hometown and abroad, the exchange of ideas about art today and how it functions in society, spaces and institutions has allowed for my artworks to find relevance to contemporary art."

“从个人经历,到童年起便开始收集的旅行日记,我的作品探讨了各种各样的主题。在多种族(土耳其巴基斯坦裔)背景成长下的我,从小耳濡目染不同的文化观念,也因此让我更好地融入到不同的民族,语言和文化中。从东西双方的观念去感知事物也让我很快地适应不同文化的撞击。如同大自然一样,我的艺术创作也是虚实合一的。作为一个风景艺术家,将更深层次的意义赋予我的作品是十分必要的,这不但让其更好地与观众对话,更是对自我的一种探索和延展。在与本土和海外艺术家交流的过程中,创作理念的交换,以及对当今艺术在社会,空间和学术环境中现状的探讨,让我的作品得以进一步与当代艺术产生呼应。”
