Artist Statement

Denise’s work reflects her love of photography, painting and travel configured into graphic pseudo-realities of everyday life filtered through her own whimsical creative lens. Her tableaux are bustling pastiches of architectural elements and city life, arranged at unusual angles, irregular scale and not necessarily in their true-to-life configuration. Inspired by her globe-trotting experiences, which have been numerous and frequent, her cityscapes are at once recognizable, yet somehow -surreal.

Her creative process involves digital photo manipulation, image transfer, acrylic photo collage, and acrylic paints/mediums, and other innovative techniques. Working in a variety of scale, Denise creates panels that are graphic, contemporary and yet somehow nostalgic. Often her pieces are black and white with minimalist colour accents, while others abound with colour - her visual vocabulary always unique and always authentic.

Denise’s on-going series of city-scapes, entitled Travelling the World, pays homage to some of her favourite places - mostly urban scenes bursting with all that city life involves. Buildings, cars, people, city wildlife, skies, lawns, urban gardens, vendors, road signs, taxis, electrical poles & wires, streets, harbours compete for our attention, as we gaze upon Denise’s unique universes.

Merging many photographs into a singular image, Denise offers a unique impression of the cities she’s visited during her travels – her perspective capturing the urban land-scape as only a traveler could, highlighting the often mundane, yet essential elements that make up the living, breathing and evolving ecosystem of a city.

We can look for a very long time & still discover new things.

    I'm a Dutch globetrotting artist, living and creating in Montréal. Have you ever noticed those tourists with their big cameras, taking endless pictures? I'm one of those, all the time! I use my pictures to create mixed media urban landscapes.
