Name: Hana Yilma
Statement: I'm fascinated with the unexpected and attempt to symbolize the unexpected with forms I'm familiar and unfamiliar with. This experience compels to me observe their differences through their commonalities. Finding similarities between totally different objects paves the way for me to observe their influences on each other and creates cohesive forces among the forms. Human beings are the most dominated part of my painting, and people's daily live's and activities. They are significant creatures in the universe and in my paintings. Specially, having the experience of strong social life makes me more fascinated about others people's lives. Finding different meaning from ordinary life drives me to work and communicate the information that I observe and understand, and sometimes experiencing the diverse ways of life makes me to wonder how people exist in other places.
