"A sunny summer day. Two boys want to swim in the sea. Nothing seems to be wrong, but thousands of plastic bottles float underwater. The sea is polluted with our plastic waste. This work is part of the series "Living with pollution and waste on earth". All my works are inspired by patinated walls with posters, flaking paint and all kinds of things in decline.

I try to create something new, beautiful with these elements. This particular work of art is part of the Collages series. These collages are built with all kinds of photos, photos and images that I have collected over the years.

I assemble original photographs, matching papers, acrylic, oil, charcoal, ink and a pencil in my works. I have always appreciated the appearance of the patinated walls covered with flaking paint and old posters, and I relive this aesthetic with a keen and professional eye." - db Waterman

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.
