DESCRIPTIONThis is the photo from the series "Other Worlds". Here is my Artist Statement...
In the intimacy of my room I dive deep into the unpredictable, hidden world of colors and liquids. While trying to capture the unstable forms with my camera, I'm searching for Other Worlds. Although in reality these worlds are squeezed in my kitchen bowl, I imagine them as new planets in the vastness of the Universe. I fantasize about the birth of stars and the creation of new (better) worlds.
Although these photographs look as abstract expression of colors and shapes, for me they represent a search for broader spaces, wider horizons, and a proof that even between the four walls of your room you could travel far with your imagination.
