“C” like Carrot. “W” like Weapon

The sound of glue is constantly heard. He cuts one out and glues the other. This is the story that very often happens in the environment of my work.

An environment in which values are played with. They are increased or decreased, stretched and torn apart in an instant.

This is a quality generated through floral borders. A border that guides the mind towards the stamps and gives a critical social structure to the work. It prices the values that we construct and deconstruct leisurely, the values we put a patch on when frayed.

Patches that are stuck to substitute or override a previous shape, or might repair and cover a defect.

In my theory, the elements that contradict each other, sit beside one another in order to “create a secondary element in meaning” and the volumes and collages are a means for transferring this personal reasoning.

The challenge of meaning between the preliminary image and the things attached in the last moments, gives a paradoxical quality to the work which makes its reading greatly ambiguous.

As a result of the said approach, I decided to decorate Ahmad Shah with carrots instead of flowers.
