"Eyes closed drawings series" - pen, pencil, marker, pastel, ink on paper - variable dimensions

 

In these works I put myself in a passive state to see how people consciously form me.

 

I close my eyes and transfer my dreams to paper or canvas abstractly. My drawings show various layouts and possibilities of the memory disunity, randomness and the compositions of various minds.

 

While I make the drawings blindfolded I depend on people's suggestions in order to discover and reveal the forming relations between people. 

 

During the process till the end, I lose where I have been lastly after each pause. So what I draw is never what I have dreamed at that time. This situation breaks the connection of images by scattering them around. Incomplete and fragmented images accumulate on the surface. 

 

I ask the people around me whether they are finished or not. The dimensions of the drawings also depend on the walls of the space where I am. I choose the colors randomly, and use markers, pens, pastels and charcoal as materials.

 

The titles of the drawings are about the logic of the construction phase.
