There are many roles I play in my life such as woman, mother, wife, daughter, and artist. Sometimes, it feels like these roles imply high personal and social expectations. My work is based on my complex feeling about the meaning of these roles and the different emotions they provoke in me: happiness, sadness, hope, frustration, desperation, passion, and rage. I use these diverse emo#ons to expose the conflict which arises from the fact the same person is playing a few roles at the same time. Through my work, I express the emo#ons that I succumb to in my life by juxtaposing unrealis#c images of my body with realistic images of animals. Pueng contrasting images in my work is my way of crea#ng my own reality. The complicated issues of my life are not reflected in my works, which are bright and colorful. In the process of creting artistic images, my difficult feelings are transformed into vibrant shapes and colors.
