db Waterman Profile picture Typical Dutch winter landscape with people skating on nature ice. I made this artwork in the winter of 2014/2015 because it seemed like a suitable time of the year. I personally like the winter season very much. Maybe because I was born in January. All my artworks are inspired by weathered walls with posters, peeling paint and all sorts of things in decline.
I try to create something new, something beautiful with these elements.
This specific 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 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 !
