Atelier van Dommelen 

By artist Liset van Dommelen

Rotterdam Netherlands or traveling around in a VW bus

                   Art is a journey into the most unknown thing of all - oneself.

                                                   Nobody knows his own frontiers.

I’m a Dutch artist who also studied dramatic arts. But I’am in the first place a wanderer, a documenter, and process researcher. Fascinated by ice, silence,time ,thoughts, and nature.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

I explore in the format of projects and process research.                                                                            This year (2018 / 2019 ) I work on a magic shirt like they appear in the 6 swans story by Grimm to reconnect with silence and to find out what such a fairytale task does with the creator.                                                                                                                               

As a printer I have developed my own version of gyotaku printing. Printing animals and my muze in animal suites with naturale dyes is where I work on at the moment. He made the photo on this page “portrait in sepia” on my request when I was working with the ink of a sepia / seacat to print and cook.      In the summer of 2018 I will visit several European wilderness projects to document them on photo, prints and screenprints. part of these works can be seen in Brussels later this year.

If you like to see my work you are very welcome in my atelier in Rotterdam.                                               I also give presentations about my work and how it evolves.                                                                                                       More details about that or if you like to make an appointment to visit me, or if you have something else you want to ask.

2018 Is the last full year I work in the Netherlands for a while. It is also the last year that I have easy access to my prints for exhibitions or to sell them. On the road I will improvise most of the time and work with local or found materials and print methods. But I do I have full access to my photos.                          If you wonder where Atelier van Dommelen is wandering and working, Instagram will give you the answer :
