The art of Marijke de Wit (Wormerveer, 1949), has a certain quality of stillness and peace. Due to her direct and accurate manner of working, they are also characterized by a high degree of spontaneity with their clear colours. In the 1960's Marijke attended the Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten in The Hague. In this city countless exhibits of her work have been held. In 1997 her work was shown in the Kunsthal in Rotterdam.
'Marijke de Wit moves with her easel throughout her home. She works in many different spaces, and depicting home interiors is a sensitive issue: secure, cozy places of safety. Places where you can dream away, where desire can overcome you or restlessness can rise to the surface. A place of intimacy where love and feelings of connectedness with your immediate surroundings come together. She lets you see the actual objects in those places and she reveals, though they are concealed, the intimacy present in these spaces." Michiel Morel, 15 November 2014.
