Insil: What starts out as just touch, smell, taste and sound; feeling soon becomes manipulated into a dialectic of futility, leaving only a sense of tension and the possibility of a new sensation. My work tends to focus on the human figure, but instead of a representational approach, I abstract the figure only to the extent that you can still recognize what it is. Many often classify my work as part of the Romantic Movement because of the desire for the viewer in the unfolding of sensitiveness of the human figure. However, this reference is not intentional, as I believe this is created by the viewers collected experiences. By emphasizing aesthetics, my imagery is almost always nude because I believe that people are most vulnerable when naked or bare. At times, disconcerting beauty emerges. The inherent visual seductiveness, along with the conciseness of the situation, further complicates the reception of their manifold layers of meaning.
I primarily create works on paper varied between many times of printmaking methods. Printmaking methods such as etching and screen-printing are especially invigorating to me because a final images is created by multiple individual layers. By creating intimate situations and breaking the passivity of the spectator, I create work through labor-intensive processes, which can be seen explicitly as a personal exorcism ritual.
