Art reflects the subconscious mind. I have always been wrestling with concepts of truth, sexuality and the difference they make, as well as ideological structures. Thus, I have been constantly facing with the question of truth and how it might be recognized. I believe that nothing is absolute, certain, or definite, and truth is sometimes like a black hole: even getting near it is terrifying. “Isolation” refers to our way of life and how the human mind can be trained and controlled in these conditions. It also deals with how our desires and beliefs are preconditioned and are imposed on us as definitions; language is a mere agreement, invented, apparently, for communication; but it is actually there for dominating our minds and conditioning our thoughts.
