Relief printing on paper
As a multidisciplinary artist, my primary goal is to create systems with an emphasis on geometric abstraction. My current work is being made around the influence of rules applied in the crafting of game-like experiences. Taking on both the role of the rule-setter and the participant, I am involved in the process of making "situations" (strict conditions with clear rules) and their subsequent resolutions. "Regularities" project investigates the theme of instructions and visual patterns. Individually hand stamped, in a time-consuming, laborious repetition, used simple shapes are creating orders, which are easily ruined by just one mistake, and as easily changed by just one alteration in the instruction. Using bold figures and related to them regulated interactions such as multiplications, shift, and rotation - I aim to reflect on the rule-based conceptual art. Consciously implementing
pattern esthetic, I'm trying to blur the line between generality and particularity in my visual language.
