Dominique Kerkhove (DomKcollage)

When the city cries the tears appear!


Kerkhove Dominique, alias Dom(K) is an artist, Euro citizen, tireless walker and patient observer, he search on the walls of cities what makes my raw material: the poster. Ecological Realistic, he use what already exists to transform it. He create "Made-Ready" (or collages) from torn posters. He breathe a new destiny into an ephemeral urban creation to make a contemporary work that fits into time. Free from the straitjacket of a specific doctrine, he recognize, however, a technical proximity used by certain artists: exploitation of under posters (Dufresnes), all over (Pollock), take-off (Vostell). Made-Ready is not a style of collage but an approach that expresses itself through a plurality of pictorial forms whose central element is the paper (poster) resulting (torn) from an urban context. Despite various attempts at hierarchical classification, my work is in no way allegorical. It is concrete and materialistic. It is a narrative work of incarnation. I consciously try to give body to the sensations and perceptions, ideas and values, which constitute my artistic universe. With his Made-Ready he translate his emotions into evolving series (questionings) whose themes address a society in full industrial, moral and climatic change. Made-Ready" where he invite the spectator to react on his own certainties and evidences. A subtle game between voluntary and involuntary memory. Close to the art brut, I define my resolutely abstract positioning for a thematic yet figurative of our society."
