Artist Statement

Global Patterns is a printed digital collage made of more than 300 brand’s logos. By digitally stitching these logos together and creating oriental patterns from them, I aim to reimagine the hands that have weaved rich cultural narratives. The warp and weft of every rug reclaim the influence and beauty of those forgotten traditions. Integrating traditional symbolism and ironic elements of consumer culture reconnects me with my heritage in a postmodern way. This process allows these precious cultural elements that are getting lost in the seductiveness of capitalism and globalization to be re-witnessed.
