In his recent paintings, such as " THE SEEDS AND PLANETS " and " A SQUARE GARDEN " in 1994 and " THE PALM OUT OF THE EARTH " in 1997, we can that the meaning of life and death, which he expresses rhythmically by means of light and darkness of the internal universe, has been given a bigger dimension.
