A mysterious bamboo forest where, in the evening, you can see thousands of fireflies. All my works are inspired by patinated walls with posters, flaking paint and all kinds of dilapidated things. I try to create something new, beautiful with these elements. This particular work is part of the Collages series. These collages are made up of all kinds of photos, images and images that I have collected over the years. I assemble original photographs, matching papers, acrylics, oil, charcoal, ink and a pencil in my works. Having always loved the appearance of walls patinated with flaked paint and old posters, I revive this aesthetic with a keen and professional eye. The creative objective of my work is to "make something beautiful out of something that is not squandered". My paintings explore the dissonance between old and new materials, intertwined in the most beautiful way possible to create melancholic and dreamlike images. The materials used: paper, acrylic, glue, varnish.

db assembles original photographs, matching papers, acrylics, oil, charcoal, ink and a pencil in his works. The variety of resources she can use has proven to be essential for her. The biggest challenge with the bonding medium was its lack of merciless transparency. Finding a way to reproduce the effects of the transparency offered by painting, especially watercolours, was for db a "great victory".

The preparation work is reflected in the collages; layer on layer of material remains visible in the finished parts. According to db, his work is characterized by his ability to reinvent. Having always loved the appearance of patinated walls, flaked paint and old posters, she revives this aesthetic with a lively and professional look.

The creative objective of his work is to "do something beautiful by squandering". His paintings explore the dissonance between old and new materials, intertwined in the most beautiful way possible to create dreamlike and melancholic images.
