Dilek Şenol expresses her thoughts about her art with the following words: "I think art is a powerful form of expression to understand ourselves. In these days when we have difficulty maintaining our state of well-being, my intention is to take a short break and breathe with art. It is to open space and guide the person's production process. Because art heals."
