My images can be called mindscapes. The motifs for them are primarily derived from the combinations of nature, distant memories of my childhood as well as certain daily events.
My prints employ various tactile techniques such as calligraphic sugarlift lines, softground impressions and carborundum-textured surfaces. This is an effort of trying to create a dialogue between different printmaking mediums I feel comfortable working with linear drawings of scenes or objects and atmospheric field by layering a variety of light textures. With my work, I am exploring the possibility of creating visual poetry in the midst of ordinary days.
