CHILD IN TIME by db Waterman

db Waterman Profile picture This artwork is about the struggle between nature and encroaching industry, with the child in between. The child that has to adapt to its environment and always does, without effort, without resistance.

It is not a struggle for the child. The child merges into his environment and makes it his own, as if it has to be that way.

I think the recurring themes in my portfolio are very relevant now more than ever. My art depicts the current state of the world and how our children grow up in an often unjust and deteriorating environment. Yet the very ability of children to transcend difficult situations and find joy and light in the darkest of environments is the much-needed hope for the future. Sustainability is also integrated into my works through the materials I use. Most of these materials are reused for my artworks.

I remembered that as a young girl I so much liked to cut images from magazines to paste them into school agendas, scrapbooks and even on my bedroom door. Add to this the fascination I always had for walls filled with old posters, flaking paint, scrappy billboards and weathered paint, it opened an unexpected door for completely new opportunities. Completely unintended I found a new way of working, I felt pleasurably and comfortably at home in. What started out as copying old walls with worn out posters has grown into many series of new visual storytelling. Not simply just eclecticism, but bringing together many seemingly incoherent story lines into one completely new story, my own personal story. Initially it lacked the one thing that is important to me, the transparency that normally only is possible with the use of watercolor. The unforgiving layering of transparent watercolors is a challenge I would not want to miss and after a lot of trial and error I finally succeeded in getting the collages as transparent as a watercolor. Every layer of paper, oil, acrylic, pencil, crayon, ballpoint, watercolor, ink, charcoal and whatever else I use, remains visible in the artwork. You can imagine it made me feel the queen of the ball !
