oilpaint on linen, 150x100cm, July/September 2020

Isabella Logemann with her lover, close to eachother, outside, the garden, no one else, just the two of them. Quiet, both reading. My grandparents, unaware of the years to come.

Bella and the Chaos of Spring

oilpaint, pigments on linen, 80x100cm, May 2020

Here she is again, Isabella Logemann, long time ago. She is outside, it's late, already dark, a warm evening in springtime. You can see the reflection of the stars and the moon. Above and below her, like in a mural painting, birds and waterplants circling around her...all those wonders you can sense in this chaotic time of year.

oilpaint, pigments on linen, 120x100cm, April 2020

In this painting you can see my grandmother Isabella Logemann. As a young woman, sitting in her chair near the window. She is still wearing her workingclothes. The late afternoon sun brings the room into a golden glow. This was a hundred years ago in Rotterdam. I gave the dark room the colours of todays spring.

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.

Werk van Marijke Pielage
oilpaint on linen, 24x30cm, January/February 2020

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

Werk van Marijke Pielage
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

Werk van Marijke Pielage
oilpaint, oil pastel and crayon on paper, 70x120cm / 2019

When the 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.
