db Waterman Profile picture Despite the stark contrast between the natural beauty of the beach and the old rusty industry in the background, the boy felt a sense of freedom and excitement as he began to run. His feet pounded against the sand, his arms pumped along his sides and his heart raced with adrenaline.

As he continued to run, the boy began to feel connected to the beach and the industry in the background. He realized that both parts of the world were necessary and could coexist in harmony. Industry provided jobs, goods and services to people around the world, while the beach provided a space for people to connect with nature and find peace.

In this Mixed Media artwork, I mixed Acrylic paint with layers of magazine collage for the top of the work. This makes a lot of small print visible, especially when the work is printed in large format
For the beach and water part, I also used magazine paper , so texts and letters are still visible through the acrylic paint.
Over the collage part I painted the rusty industrial parts, the water and the boy with acrylic paint, combined with pastel crayons.
The painting contains a lot of small details.

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 !
