The houses in the images are my home or those of my friends and acquaintances; places I interact with every day. Through drawing, I study these places and find the relationship between the people and the objects inside them. Moreover, I am trying to figure out how they relate to a specific space and how to display our everyday lives. Objects or people are inseparable components of these houses, while they all have the same level of significance. By diminishing the contrast in the spaces, and considering the level of light, which is the common denominator of all houses, I try to melt people and objects into the house while I connect them to each other. The low level of color/light contrast in my works is intentional: I want to create harmony and remove the distinction between the elements. In my drawings, I try to show the interplay of the three elements of the house, objects, and humans, without highlighting any of them. To me, this complicated interrelation is home.
