Concept

Becoming thoughtless. My art is a visual experience of patterns, thoughts, processes trying to transforming into a thoughtless present.

I begin by duplicating holy practices on surface like pouring, ornamenting, meditating, creating sounds, hymns etc. These layers narrate the existence of the religious believes; similar to the context of the mantras that unites me with my painting process. The mantras are the religious sounds, hymns or words that are considered capable of “creating transformation.” I experience a similar transformation within myself, reaching the altitude of being thoughtless as I record my journey on the painting surface.
