THE STORY BEHIND…

Shock horror! What are these three old geezers so struck by? We join them at what seems to be a children’s party (although the whisky on the table may suggest otherwise..?), decked out in Micky Mouse ears (a signature of the artist), and a paper crown, these three miscreants have been sent to shock. Proteus is referred to as the “Old Man of the Sea” by Homer, yet he can also be translated as “capable of assuming many forms” hence we have these three cheeky chaps, almost identical in their age, wrinkles and grey wispy hair.

This series of twelve poppy, colourful, digital collages sees gods and goddesses reborn through a combination of previously produced photographs.

artist

Barbara van den Berg (The Netherlands, 1978) is an insanely talented artist. Did you think the Dutch could only paint flowers and cows? Well, you will have to reconsider after seeing her work. Look closer: some of her collages are the mix of up to 40 different characters. Who would have thought a patchwork of people could be that beautiful? She sure did. Is she a visionary? Is she a magician? Go back a few lines: insanely talented, it’s as simple as that.
