From 30 June to 22 September 2019, Museum Valkenburg will display an exciting exhibition with work by Dorine van der Ploeg in the upper room. Especially for this exhibition, Dorine returned from Amsterdam to the area where she grew up to work on a new series of collages.

Dorine van der Ploeg (Heerlen, 1983) graduated in 2015 from the Wackers Academy in Amsterdam under the supervision of the English artist Jim Harris. Inspired by his way of looking – only when you start observing your subject properly, you discover that it is far more interesting than the image of it in your head – her work is the result of a continuous observation of her immediate environment. Parallel to this process of observation, an experiment takes place with the use of various materials, techniques and mutual combinations. It is the fascination for the spontaneous brush stroke and its clarity that lies behind the making of Dorine’s collages.
