First you have to start with an incredible sense of humor. A kind of pun master. A girl I once knew told me that if I could tell funny puns, we’d be great friends. She married someone else. Dan Levin has a razor wit. And he exercises them in 3D collages. Sculptures.

Second you have to have certain physical skills. Recently I put a new screen door on the back of my house. It bangs. Doesn’t really fit. But my wife is satisfied. At least I didn’t put it on upside down. Like I do with my trousers.

I lived for four years in Belgium with my wife and son in a small apartment across from a church in the village square. The apartment was covered in flowered wallpaper. It made me clausterphobic. I could not speak Flemish, the language of the village so I was pretty alienated. That’s when these collages were created. Visit Hamme, Belgium.

I like paints on a water basis – a watercolor, gouache, acrylic. They are mobile and I fill some spontaneity when I draw. They give miracle a chance to infiltrate “into this world”.
When I draw it seems to me that I open the next unknown country. I see, what are landscapes, and how people are dressed, etc. The most important thing is – it must be interesting to me to travel there. And pictures will be interesting to.

This is the artist’s statement. Wonderful. Direct. No pretension. Just like her work. It is magical. And clean. She has illustrated many children’s book. (If you want to see a lot of great work without going to a museum, go to a book store and browse through the children’s section.)
