Interior Design bureau Inter Alter in the crowdfunding campaign in this Dutch-language article on their blog.
At the end of July I was informed that I have been selected to take part in the prestigious international Talent Pressure Cooker program of Bio Art Laboratories in Eindhoven. During a research period of 10 weeks I will look for opportunities to help bio-based and biodegradable alternative for the current acrylic paint for the creative sector. The focus here is on renewable natural material and organic polymers. The ultimate goal is to contribute to the transition to a sustainable art sector, where material use fits in with a circular vision.
During the Dutch Design Week 2018 in Eindhoven from 20 to 28 October, the research result (and hopefully a prototype product) will be presented to visitors and businesses. To meet the high travel, accommodation and presentation costs that come with this research period, I seek financial support through this crowdfunding campagne.
The paint, the beautiful opaque white colour on my body is made of oyster shells, earth, nature…I am nature, we are nature…Everything is connected. Nothing in live is permanent, be humble! This image is part of a series made in collaboration with @linolithium , images that focus on the relationship between human and nature, images that very literally show the connection between me, my art/research and nature. This wonderful colour white is made from oyster shells (a waste material from restaurants… ) My paint is completely biodegradable, making sure not to break the continuous circle that is and should be present throughout life!

Below movie is an interview (in Dutch) Dorieke gave at loacal radio RTV Maastricht about the workshops of 8 and 15 april 2018 (Dutch language link) at the CNME during the project Couleur Locale.
The Resource House in Heerlen is the first modular house in the Netherlands that is completely built with recycled materials and raw materials. The first design for the Resource House already consists of 66% recycled (demolition) materials, but their search for new applications in re-use continues!
As a pigment specialist, Dorieke is researching the color of pigments from various demolition materials with natural origin (eg these roof tiles). Subsequently, in collaboration with Jorn Behage, we examine which possibilities these pigments have in the Resource House, such as wall colors.
Dorieke is guest speaker during the BedTalks in the Maastricht Student Hotel op March 8.

Last weeks Dorieke was artist-in-residence bij Glo’ Art. From this residency two new paintings were produced, completely done in natural pigments.
“Give you roots and the Freedom to Grow” /1.90m x 1.40m/ tempera made with natural pigments on burlap/2018 /
It celebrates the relationship between human and nature, showing a pattern of light and shadow on hands holding a delicate root, against a background of dark soil. There is no light without darkness and no life without death…A large circle binds everything together, the colours/pigments/paint are made of soil, earth, nature…we are nature, earth, soil, it is the origin and destination of all, everything is connected. Nothing in life is permanent, be humble!
