Artist Statement

Realizing the reality that surrounds me, I am just an example, a subject of culture, an illustration of the mentality it perfectly brewed up for me/us, and without any comprehension we sip from it constantly. I realized that it wasn’t anyone’s fault really, the invisible shackles that we placed on ourselves were heavy. Shackles that came to be because of the social pressure that appeared from being a subject of a one classified society, and the feeling of belonging or the fear of no longer belonging to such a big community is what drives it. I feared to be different, to start something different. “it's just how things are” or “its how it is” limiting even the idea or thought or the possibility of something different/change. But ultimately it’s all in our heads, minds, mental state that we allow ourselves to be in. Sometimes, most of the time, its extremely hard to get out of even if our conscious knows we need out. Cause it's just easier to follow,because it’s so nice to belong.
