db Waterman about I LIKE IT HERE

This particular artwork is part of the Collages series. These collages are built up with all kinds of pictures, photos and images that I have collected over the years . Some of the works are created by only arranging photographs in a certain way. Other collages are created wit transferred images that are pulled loose or torn. Old and torn, outworn and weathered. Layer upon layer. On some of the collages I painted acrylic patterns or animals and figures. Most of the works are also worked over with ink, pencil, watercolor or ballpoint pen.

This artworks is offered by db Waterman

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 !
