Fit 1: Transformation

(Dutch, 2006)
  Book illustrations.

‘Your face is the same as everybody has—the two eyes, so—’nose in the middle, mouth under. It’s always the same. Now if you had the two eyes on the same side of the nose, for instance—or the mouth at the top—that would be SOME help.’ ‘It wouldn’t look nice,’ Alice objected. But Humpty Dumpty only shut his eyes and said ‘Wait till you’ve tried.’ 
Looking Glass

"The principle of collage is among the most significant contributions of modern art to contemporary culture. Collage allows an inexhaustible conversation between pictures, challenging the commonplace and our comfort zone. With collages, known pictures are open to free reinvention, promoting poetic strangeness and unexpected associations, daring the concept of originality and authorship. It is not just a group of manual or digital techniques, but a great puzzle. We are faced, then, with a new logic, a call to awaken the alicedelic imagination and enigmagic thinking. The collage is the art of selection and combination, choice, encounter and transformation."
