We Like Art - Secret Postcard Sale | Westergasfabriek | Amsterdam
16/12/2017 - 29/12/2017

Special secret mail from Brazil! During my artist-in-residence in Rio de Janeiro I found some time to make two postcard size artworks for the exhibition We Like Art - Secret Postcard Sale. An exhibition with more then 300 little works from 142 different artists. If you went to the Westergasfabriek, you would have seen that at least one had arrived safely from the other side of the world.

Artist in Residence - Despina | Rio de Janeiro | Brasil
01/11/2017 - 30/11/2017

In the month November I moved my studio to Rio de Janeiro for an art in residence program at Despina.
Last year I researched the elements that create a sense of home in my direct surroundings in the Netherlands. Working at Despina I was separated from my everyday belongings and therefore forced to search for other ways to feel at home. Luckily Rio was full of colours!

Thuis - nieuwe werken van Britt Dorenbosch | Centraal Museum | Utrecht
9/9/2017 - 26/11/2017

The past year, with support of the K. F. Hein Fonds, I have been working on a new series of paintings and drawings. In this series I researched what creates a sense of home. What are the elements that make you feel at home? And how important are memories in this process? With the resulting works I made the exhibition called 'At Home'.

Art Rotterdam - Prospects & Concepts | Monderiaan Fund
09/02/2017 - 12/02/2017

In 2015 I received a Stipendium for Emerging Artist, hence my work was part of the exhibition Prospects & Concepts at Art Rotterdam. This year the Mondriaan Fund asked Stijn Huijts, artistic director of the Bonnefantenmuseum Maastricht, to curate the exhibition. Works of over sixty young artists were shown, varying from painting to photography, from objects to installations and from video to performances. I showed the first results of my research into feeling at home: Thuis 1

K.F. Hein Art Stipend

Yes!! I won this year's K. F. Hein Art Stipend with my sketch design 'Thuis'. The jury was impressed by my very personal research proposal that yet allows the public to feel connected to the subject. Coming year I will be researching the concept of feeling at home through painting and drawing. The results will be shown autumn 2017 in the Nieuw Utrecht Kamers at the Central Museum Utrecht. As the photo shows: I am very happy!

K.F. Hein Art Stipend


After a few months of hard work, I finished my proposal for the K.F. Hein Art Stipend. Today I am going to submit it together with a model of the exhibition. What remains is a pitch on the 12th of September and then we wait for the jury to decide. Exciting times!

21/5/2016 - 28/5/2016

Code Rood asked me to exhibit my paintings at the former gatehouse of Buitenplaats Koningsweg. I didn't feel like just taking my work there, hang it on the walls and leave it at that. So I considered it as a small artist in residence and lived and worked at their grounds for one week. At the end of the week I finished a room full of drawings and another room with a panoramic painting of nine meters long. All work had a direct link to my youth. The drawings portrayed the clothes that I wore when I was a child which I scaled up to my current size. The panoramic painting was based on pictures of my childhood holidays close to Winterswijk. (For the results see Thuis at Code Rood)

Nomination K.F. Hein Art Stipend


Every two years the K.F. Hein Fund disburses a stipend to support visual artists and designers in the area of Utrecht. This year I am one of the five nominees. The next months I will continue working on my research proposal focusing on the concept of home. At the end of September the K. F. Hein Fund will announce who will be granted the stipend and work for one year towards an exhibition at the Central Museum of Utrecht.
