Enriched Bread Artists

Member's bio: Marije Bijl 

Marije Bijl is a Dutch artist. A storytelling artist, or so she has been called. Our world is made of tales, we make our identities with them, colour our world with them, try to give our lives a sense of place or purpose within them. 

The stories and identities that she draws or paints are fragmented, hovering between realistic and abstract, as if built up of stories that are haphazard, disconnected, not what they seem. Different pieces and different colours that sometimes only just and sometimes no more fit together, paint and ink that try to build up identities like we construct them masks that could be truths, symbols that could be philosophies, paint that could be flesh, lines that could be thoughts. Or rifts. Or forgotten distortions.

Marije Bijl currently travels the world following her spouse, and has exhibited in The Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France, China, the USA and now Canada.
