I have traveled down insanity's path
Aching with melancholic memories,
The sea stands.
Each wave destroying the remaining pieces.
Footprints are etched onto the sand, the sand is but swallowed by the sea.
I assemble original photography, assorted papers, acrylics, oil, charcoal, ink, and pencil in my works. The variety of resources I am able to use has proved indispensable to me. Having always loved the appearance of weathered walls plastered with peeling paint and old posters, I revive this aesthetic with hopefully a keen and professional eye. The creative objective of my work is to “make something beautiful out of dilapidation.” My tableaus explore the dissonance between old and new materials, intertwined in the most beautiful way possible to create dreamlike and melancholy images.
I took a picture of the sea in Scheveningen, near The Hague. In Photoshop, I've combined this photo with pieces of a watercolor artwork. I also used pieces of other collage artworks. I have printed this result on paper. I have completely worked the print over with acrylic, paper pastes, magazine paper, crayon and pencil.
