Yellow Dahlia

"I heard that the Dahlia flower is very poisonous, so it should not be eaten and recommended to keep away from this flower. Dahlia flower also means that we should stay strong even in the most difficult situations and face our problems and overcome all the challenges. I shoot photographs using real models, wearing a suit with this Dahlia mask, to tell the story of people who try to stay strong in difficult situations in the real world."

"My artwork helps me to heal and embrace my worries and frustrations into forests, seas, and other parts of nature. My artwork provides an opportunity to represent our desires for hope in wearable sculpture, thereby acquiring a sense of comfort and healing."
