DOES’s collages are a continuation of his unique style and profound technique in terms of the level of detail, composition and the game of light and shadows.
Art by DOES
Every piece of paper is cut by hand. A collage comes together when small
detailed formations of pieces are glued on top of each other.
'NOTHING IS FIXED'
"The cool thing about working with paper is that nothing is fixed until I stick it with glue.
In that sense it is very different from working with paint that has to be right the first time.
I often move the pieces of paper around to find the exact right place and composition."
The first collages
"Looking at my very first collage, I find it quite raw with a lot of torn pieces of paper.
In the beginning I didn't apply many layers in my collages. You can see that I was really pioneering.
I didn't know at the time that collages would grow into a new artform."
