Didem Yağcı creates new forms by transforming her philosophicai and artistic perspectives into on innovative and unique technique, all fhe while putting emphasis on fhe relationship between visual composition, different material usage and color balance. By this approach, she aims to change the traditional way of perception in paintings to offer an alfernative way by fragmentation for the audiences.

Yagci's artworks question the reasons behind fhe "Experience of Emotions" which is the only and the most important existential difference that sets human apart from all the other creatures. In order to emphasize the universai reality of our existence, she addresses viewers as metaphorical subjects and presents them with a conceptual point of view.
