MIXED MEDIA, HANDMADE WITH PAPER & ACRYLIC PAINT
It looks as if 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 or torn. 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.
