Technique: Collage and acrylic colours on paper, textured, drawing, scratching.
Thursday is called'Donderdag' in Dutch. "Donder" means "Thunder" in English, so you can call Thursday "Thunderday" in English. That's why I used a threatening and dark sky. A boy is sitting on a swing. It's Thursday. The dark blue color is part of the dark "threatening thunder". 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 images, photos 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 liked the appearance of the walls patinated with flaked paint and old posters, I revive this aesthetic with a keen and professional eye." - db Waterman
