‘While you are sleeping’ (Seascape series) In his seascape works, Sukan manipulates his imagery connected to the constant tensions between the mental grasp of the specificity and representation. He starts taking his pictures above sea level and contextualizes the scenes and brings out a new kind of perception. At first glance, the viewer may not be suspicious of the situation but on close inspection, questions arise; if this is a night time shot, how come the ships in motion look so sharp as if they are from a frozen movie still. By reconstructing these environments from one portion to another, Sukan raises some of the most elemental questions about how we perceive the world we live. The other side of duality comes out when we look at the full moon in the sky.
The moon is in transit and clearly gives a hint that the world or in this case another planet turns in its own axis. He creates an image that represents the duality of time, space in an undefined space.

Sukan is a multi-faceted artist who is trained in interior architecture and photography and has tackled with ideas that question the limitations of human perception, the borders between the physical and the virtual as well as the visible and the invisible. Sukan’s work positions the artist as a challenging narrator who re-creates an idea or a form that confirm viewer expectations at first glance while undercutting them in practice.
