db Waterman about WHITE CITY

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.
I assemble original photography, assorted papers, acrylic, oil, charcoal, ink and pencil in my works. I have always enjoyed the look of weathered walls covered with peeling paint and old posters, and I relive this aesthetic with hopefully a sharp and professional eye.
I like to use magazine paper and the paper from old books for my collage work. I also work with many different materials such as acrylic paint, watercolor, oil pastels and pencil My brushes are usually old and very worn because I work very roughly with them. In addition, my Stanley knife is a popular tool.I also collect all kinds of materials that I can use as stamps on top of the work.

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 !
