Mixed media artist DB WATERMAN


TO BE ALONE WITH YOU; 1950. A beautiful spring day in Paris, the capital of France. A couple in love enjoy the free Sunday and the beautiful weather together.

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. The biggest challenge the collage medium posed was its unforgiving lack of transparency. Finding a way to replicate the effects of transparency afforded by paint, especially watercolors, was a large victory for me. The preparing labor shows through in my collages; layer upon layer of material remains visible in the finished pieces. I believe my body of work is characterized by my skill for reinvention.

LIFT ME UP III; A boy is walking outside with his balloons, trying to escape the gloomy reality in which he lives. I have printed a photograph, of my original artwork on paper, on canvas. The printed image is layered over with paper and acrylic paint, so there has been created a completely new original artwork.

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.

FRIDAY SWING ; A girl is having fun with a swing. It's Friday. The pink color is part of the happy feeling on a Friday, at the end of a long week. All of my artworks are inspired by weathered walls with posters, peeling paint and all kinds of things in dilapidation. I try to create something new, something beautiful with these elements.
