Marianne Hendriks

is a Dutch painter based in Amsterdam who shares her wonderment of nature in a painting practice highly informed by her background in architecture and design.

With each distillation of a leaf into a simple abstraction, Marianne attempts to make sense of the world by categorically manipulating geometry and form. Her oil paintings possess a rhythmic quality, created by the repetition of pattern and texture, and seek out balance between realism and highly stylized expression.

“I always found art captivating, it really entices curiosity. I believe that art has a decorative function. I love that art is everything but the obvious. Storytelling is what art is for me, I am crazy about stories, I like to think of it as serious play and conversation. I believe art has a great tradition but also invites one to explore and divert from it, as art is based on art.”
