My Istanbul 2
2008, Oil on Wood
38" x 4" x 1/2"
In addition to creating art, I also have a passion for design. I enjoy designing furniture, clothes, and both interior and exteriors of homes. The idea of working on wood floors came to me after one of the projects I had done.
I realized these wood floors could give me new possibilities for interesting surfaces. With the tongue and groove structure, I could expand the surface of painting vertically or horizontally into some interesting shapes and dimensions. I can stack them up and come up with new compositions. I also love the simplicity of wood, and the feeling of nature coming through the paint, it adds depth and texture to the painting.
