The traces that are left after an experience, an incident or a circumstance; good or bad, causes every mind to remember/revive a different memory.

In his works, Toros aims to evoke the emotions and recall things with the traces that he created with various techniques while he is vanishing the paint. In his series ‘The Traces of Annihilation’, he gets his inspiration from the traces in different minds that are left by experiences and conditions. He creates a parallelism between the ‘vanishing‘ marks of the paints on paper and the marks on the mind that help to recall and evoke the memories.
