About

Marije Gertenbach (1990) is a Dutch artist based in Amsterdam. She uses painting as main communicator.  In her work she  questions the way we cope with things surrounding us. The small stories are interesting for her to research. These small stories as symbols for bigger issues as ephemerality and Utopia. She is concerned with creating confusion and emphasizing the ambiguity of our ritual engagement with objects. A painting is never a static object, but always in motion. She’s constantly looking for a new way of presenting a painting. Marije is represented by galerie dudokdegroot in Amsterdam.
