I am trying to explore the Postmodernist way of engaging art with contemporary sociological issues to create a platform for the viewer to analyse the art in the social content. Everybody has their own ideas about what the reality is around us and they will all come up with their own conclusions through their own lifelong learning process which involves almost everything they have experienced personally. This aspect is mirrored in the structures of every aspect of the civilised world.
We have borders to divide countries and we have symbols for our identity. Art cannot bring solutions for these divisions, but can re present the existing reality from a different point of view to allow us to see things in a more enhanced way because it is through the eye and the mind of another viewer, which is the artist himself. It shows us at least some of this persons own conclusions or the things that they are prepared to share with us. Modernists have been eager to explore and abuse this for its entertainment value in my point of view.
Because art has this power; it has been used and abused in its history many times. Some times to just to hide the truth and disabling artists in many ways have been in practice and still are in totalitarian regimes around the world. That is why I try to limit things around me which would prevent me from doing what I really want to create as an artwork.
I try to just engage with the context of my work without some outside interventions like paparazzi media and extremist propagandas. When I do have to place the intervening outside elements in my work; I try to make sure I am showing them in the ‘content’ with the effects that I see they are transferring over the ‘subject’. For me sharing art means communicating with the observer through aesthetics and all the matrix surrounding artwork instead of using it to amuse as usually adopted by most of our contemporaries.
