One year before Burry Buermans doing his first collage, he visited an auction with some of my friends, and for a unknown reason he found himself bidding on a immens postal stamp collection which he eventually ended up buying.

5 years later, when Burry moved the 6 banana boxes filled with stamps to Portugal he came up with the idea of starting his stamp collage series.

The concept has a very interesting result, and with an exception of a few works all works consist of two framed postal stamps where one image is cut out from the first stamp to combine it with the second stamp. All works have a specific title which explains their relation. 

The details in the cutouts are very small, and we are not talking about millimeters, but a fraction of that.
