Body Image

“Body Image” is an expression adopted from Psychology which means one's understanding of his/her own body. “Body Image” will change depending on the personal experiences of each individual and the destruction of the borders of his body through time in political, social and medical occasions. Any such change is considered as a traumatic experience, a wound that blemishes and destroys this understanding.

Body Image also refers to the body of my paintings. In other words, I have considered a body for each image. A corrupted and torn apart body which has been extracted from the unconscious of the image.

The works in this exhibition reveal the mind and the memory’s effort for reviving, reminding or recurring a traumatic past, concentrating on both mentioned implications of the phrase “Body Image”.
