Carlo Houben

Fiddling around with photo editing software, I discovered that this was a medium in which I could express my ideas, philosophies, thoughts and feelings. The themes of my designs and compositions are realistic while some are politically motivated. It are outcomes of my perceptions of the topicality, phenomenons taken from life, social economical impacts on our environment and of the spiritual plan. In materializing this I like to use very ordinarily and recognisable images which I try to compose in a concerted play of colors, lines and shapes.
For the collages I mainly use photo's out of my own box, which I accumulated during my world travels. But I use also clippings from magazins, scraps and self made water-colours which I subsequently scan into the collage.
