Area, margins, format

The composition which tends to use marginal description creates tension by using deviation from the center, and deviation is the main source of visual dynamics. In order to achieve the strength of the composition, details on the sidelines are performed using geometric lines (using adhesive tape). The base format that dominate is emphasized using margins which avoid centricity of image. Marginal description tends to assume "the best possible form," to be simple, symmetrical and regular. It's important to me to reach the maximum impact with minimum resources because each accent gains a greater significance. Margin is used as a visual element and as an awareness of art that is isolated as absurd, but reinforces the impression of the colored areas or the places. Margin which appears on the pictures is based on flat two-dimensional geometrical shapes, it stretches along the edges of the image, where the surface is treated as a geometric shape. Margin as an element is characterized by anti illusion and visual primacy. Using margins, I'm trying to express static and dynamic of the image. Paintings become objects that serve as material for space installations.
