isabella pen
A memoir in works of art, dedicated to her: it’s her / in little brown and jade green / in wintertime / waiting for the things to come. I love her so much /

Here we are: three precious girls made of jade. A selfportrait with my two sisters, together in a reddish room with touches of pink and green. The ultramarine frame makes us frozen in time.

poetic text (2018, december 9)

- isabella pen
is at the riverside
the north meets 
in colors of light
all green and blue and pink and white -

the golden horse takes her 
on his back they go
flying to the colors of light -

the place

Marijke: 'My life is about pictures & storytelling, daily discoveries. I have to make notes, all the time. So time is being registered and I won't forget things. In my studio I transfer these notes into works of art: paintings, drawings, prints, texts. I like to experiment with all sorts of paper, prints and graphic techniques and so on... For me art is a medium to interact with the outside world: like pockets of silence, where we can root and grow'.
