the house perfetto
a collection of autobiographical images where the past and the present meet: the house that tells me where I am now.

Plants and pottery on the window-sill in the changing light of yellows and blues and reds and greens:  this is how a wintermorning looks in my studio.

A serie of four small works. Interiors of an unknown house, an unknown place in an unknown time. I selected them out of several black/white contactprints, found in one of the old photo-albums from my fathers family. I think it is just before or during WOII.

Van Der Aastraat

oilpaint on linen, 100x120cm, January/February 2020

'Van Der Aastraat' is about my grandparents in their house, mid 50. It's a representation of my grandmothers house where I enjoyed being as a child. I have never known my grandfather. I found it beautiful to capture this image in a language of color and design. It brings me close to one of my dearest memories. And I feel joy to see my grandmother so happy with the one she loved.

calming the sea

Posted on: 09-08-2019
Werk van Marijke Pielage
oilpaint, oil pastel and crayon on paper, 70x120cm / August

'Calming the sea' is about calming the stormy, turbulent mind that sometimes can eat away the body in several psychosomatic processes. 


When this storm hits me, I take a long walk at the riverside and say HI to the horses, the river, the bridge, the boats, the houses , the flowers, red and blue.

This summer I worked on this painting and finished it on August 5th.

in the park is where we are
just sitting on a bench
looking back

/with hindsight/

never knowing what would last and why
never knowing what would be and why
never knowing what would stay behind

/with hindsight/

just looking back
while sitting on an bench
in the park
is where we are
