SILENT SUITS is a light surrealistic artwork. Silence suits in this environment. These men seem to understand. 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. This particular artwork is part of the Collages series. These collages are built up with all kinds of pictures, photos and images that I have collected over the years. I assemble original photography, assorted papers, acrylics, oil, charcoal, ink and pencil in my works. 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 possible way to create dreamlike and melancholy images. This piece is part of my landscapes series. For this particular artwork I used a firm watercolor paper, 47.5 x 39.5 x 0.1 cm. It's very strong material. The artwork is a combination of a collage and a painting, like most of my artworks.
