Yesterday a single spread was published about Dorieke and her werk in the CNME Lab at Dagblad De Limburger. You can click on the article below to read it (Dutch only)
She was also on the local radio last saturday for the L1 Radio program “Limburgs Land“. You can hear a transscript here. (Dutch only)
Would you like to know more about her and her work?? Visit her in her lab! Contact us to make an appointment.
On Sunday, November 19, the first public workshop of Couleur Locale will take place.
The workshop takes place from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm and takes place in the lab of Couleur Locale, at the CNME Natuurtuinen Jekerdal, Drabbelstraat 7 Maastricht.
We start with explanation about the project, explanation of my research, vision, art and sustainability and my free work, a small tour of the lab and the garden. Then, students start working on the conversion of raw materials such as loss and marl in useful paint pigments. With these pigments we are going to paint on a natural basis (tempera technique). The paint can be tested on a small panel, but the focus of this workshop is on the process, not on visual results.
The cost is € 50.00 including all material, coffee / tea, excluding lunch.
The workshop will continue with enough entries, if you know interested for now or next time, sharing information is highly appreciated!
If you have any questions, I’d love to hear.

Last summer I researched how my work is taken back by nature. Previously I shared the progress of the decay of this work. After 65 days the painting was practically gone and only the burlap was left.
All images aken during this Project have now been processed into a Timelapse video, which beautifully shows the decaying process. This video can also be found on the Project Page..
The installation “Waste of Colour/Colour of Waste”, made in assignment for CityLiv / Cultura Nova, is now on show in the Collectors House in Heerlen.
The installation visualizes the proces of old roof tiles, made from natural clay, to art. Visitors see how a pile of old roof tiles slowly crumble into a fine pigment powder, this pigment turns into paint and ends in a wall full of art prints which have all been worked on with “roof-tile-paint”. The prints are made on growingpaper, this is recycled paper with integrated flower seeds. When the art is put in soil, given back to nature, the paper will degrade and new nature will arise…full circle!
During CityLiv 2017 , a part of Cultura Nova, one of my installation pieces will be on show. It caries the title “Waste of Colour / Colour of Waste ” (exploring boundaries).
CityLiv takes place during the summer festival Cultura Nova and during the Festival of the Future.
Date: 19 t/m 27 August + 14 en 15 September
Hours: 14.00h – 20.00h
Please follow this page and the homepage of www.cityliv.nl for the latest news and updates! More images and information will be available at a later time on the Project Page.
Today the activities started in the beautiful space at CNME Maastricht! Throughout the summer I will be working very hard here, with assistance of employees and volunteers, to make sure the place will be ready for the start of the project. A whole year I will be able to work here and do further research into inorganic and organic pigments.
The space was still filled up with materials and stuff no longer needed, so everything was sorted, moved and put away. Now it becomes clear what we can do with the space…Next week we will start cleaning the space and slowly turning it into a artists studio/lab. It will become a place where I can work, do my research, but it will also be a place for educational purposes. For local schools, art students, fellow artists or other interested people.
I will keep you updated through this site, have any questions or are you interested in my work/research? Dont hesitate to leave a reaction or contact me!
