about this work
"During the last Few years I've been making a series of sculptures out of numerous painted papers—I call them 'Blind self-­portraits' that I make collecting all kind of papers from everyday life, like napkins ,envelopes ,images and articles  from newspapers and magazines, receipts, bus, subway, train, tram and plane tickets, post-­‐its, business cards, drawings, letters,postcards,vouchers,invoices,recipes,etc. It is formed by a group of pieces of painted paper,that describe my everyday activities. Obviously I like the idea of transforming information into objects,first of all. Then using paint as a solution that appeals to possible 'meanings' constructed by viewers. Modular arrangement is important in terms of 'representing' chaotic patterns of growing,as innon-­‐planned urban landscape and cities.These grids are to be read as accumulative and random organizations. It is a sort of a super honest  diary in which viewers have to 'believe' in the accumulation of experience."
