I’ve come the way of madness. Painful with melancholic memories, the sea rises. Each wave destroying the remaining pieces. Footprints are engraved on the sand, the sand is swallowed by the sea.
"I assemble original photographs, matching papers, acrylics, oil, charcoal, ink and a pencil in my works. The variety of resources I am able to use has become indispensable to me. 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. I took a picture of the sea in Scheveningen, near The Hague. In Photoshop, I combined this photo with watercolor elements. I also used pieces from other collage works. I printed this result on paper. I worked completely in printing with acrylic, pulp, magazine paper, pencil." - db
