‘My  artistic research preoccupied in an evidence references to ecology after nature within human–animal relationships in an autobiographical standpoint by means of drawing and paintings, everyday sketches, photographs moving images offered in flexible ways of implementation in mixed media, two-dimensional work of drawing  and works on paper will be the principal means of artistic approach regarding the interrelationship between humans and nature is the speculation triggering the subject matter. 

The works essentially observes natural forms and organic movements to perceive the spiritual transformation of the eternal living organism, flora-fauna, forms and formations, earth movements, water flows and current, soil erosions and eruptions, people and manners of varied circumstances etc. This exposes multiple layers of interconnection between the natural and the human-made in the context of every socio-political-environmental contemporary predicament.’
