db Waterman about THE ANNOUNCEMENT

HANDMADE WITH PAPER & ACRYLIC PAINT
It looks like taped texts and posters are disconnected. Mixed media and assemblage on paper. This work is part of the series Collages. The collages are built with all kinds of pictures, photos and images that I have collected over the years. Supplemented with photos from my own life. Some works are made only with photos arranged in a certain way. Other collages are pasted images that are pulled loose. I tried to duplicate the old walls covered with posters and placards or the advertising columns as you see them in large cities, such as Amsterdam, London and Paris. Old and torn, dilapidated and weathered. Layer upon layer. I edited a number of collages with acrylic paint or covered them with animals and figures wich are painted with acrylic paint. Some works are also edited with ballpoint pen. The combinations of colors I think is important.

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 !
