The artist searches for a more aesthetic and more different world beyond the known boring and shallow world. This world is freer and more colorful. The combination of abstract shapes on canvas turns into free expression in this world. Because of each new development and knowledge change people’s point of view for the same object many times. So visual expression of this can’t stay the same. Moreover why forms should be reflected in strict limits? In this free expression, objects get rid of the bounding limits.  Colors change into new and sensational expression.
