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!
