Demirok has an inner vision comprised of  fragmented impressions from spare memories that are suggestively anchored in the minds of people, which he collages to a condensed reality.

These new realities are created by random principle and immediateness. It is primarily the process of painting that gives the work's meaning and spacialness. Spontaneousness is an important principle of this self-imposed minimalistic technique and means of expression. Demirok chooses this working procedure in order to eliminate any personal signature. He himself states: „My intention may be the search of an anonymous code system in order to transfer means of fictive anonymity.“ … Especially the series NOWHERE PLACES seems to by affected by this thought. Situations arouse, that we think to know, that seem oddly familiar, but still are not clearly identifiable. The seem like details from fictive spaces perceived from a dynamic perspective, comprised of fragmented architectures, urban and industrial panoramas or minimalistic landscapes. Demirok's works again question the spacial and temporal structure of paintings, not only in respect of their content, but especially in regard of a temporality of vision...
