THE SECOND LAYER (1989)
Tech: Canvas, mixed media
All this looked like the writings which exist as a second layer. Then, I realized that we were walking on the cultural layer. Anything below us was to be considered as a cultural layer. If you dig deeper, you could unveil the history that had existed before us. The color of those graves was amazing, too, because, with time, patina is formed on the surface of bronze and there appears simply a stunning shade. All of it was my source of inspiration for creation of my work.
Yet, I have put some other, particular sense into it. There are writings and calligraphy in the picture and in the center of the work is a black hole. People have different perceptions of it. In general, this hole is where it all came from and where everything will disappear in the end.”
