About The Artwork

"POPPIES" is a typical Dutch landscape. The centrepiece of this work is a young girl, adorned in an immaculate white dress. Her essence reflects the purity of the poppies that surround her. In the foreground, the canvas comes alive with an explosion of warm red; the flowers dance in harmony with the girl's skipping rope gracefully swirling through the air. The poppies, like bursts of joy frozen in time, form an enchanting contrast to the girl's ethereal white dress. Above it, the sky tells a story of approaching drama. The sky, painted in warm hues, betrays the calm below with the threat of thunder. Dark clouds gather and cast a shadow over the idyllic scene. But even as the thunderstorm approaches, the warmth of the colors suggests a certain resistance to the impending gloom, as if nature itself is caught in a moment of tension between opposing forces. The composition is a delicate balance of contrasts - the innocence of youth against the backdrop of the force of nature. The girl, absorbed in her rhythmic dance with the skipping rope, becomes a symbol of resilience and joy in the face of uncertainty.

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 water colors, 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. 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.
