New paintings with natural pigments during Residency at Glo’Art

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 “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!

It celebrates the relationship between human and nature, showing a figure standing on a surface of soil and roots, holding pieces of the same earth/soil in the hands. 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
