As I traveled through Persia
the vast prairie,
the city of sorrow and sorrow,
When delivering letters and collecting taxes,
I found that I have gradually forgotten
stay in Istanbul
The face of a little lover.
- Excerpted from "My Name is Red"
My text is a form of exploration. When you are not satisfied with the theory of reality reflection, the structure of the painting is not important. For me, after so many years of creation, I have been looking for the relationship between reality and the picture, as well as the use of What is the most appropriate form to express this relationship? These two aspects are the main exploration content of my creation.
