Marije van Wieringen

Marije is a Dutch artist and Stoic philosopher. Her work consists of oil paintings, drawings, and ‘see-through’ drawings in marker on acrylic glass – all influenced by her life-philosophy… Reverence for Nature can be found in the painstakingly detailed depiction of trees in works like ‘Ode to a beech tree’ and the transparent work ‘Twisted trunk’, but also in the many works that have a life-cycle or (sometimes hidden) ‘memento mori’ theme: Stoics aim to accept their mortality as part of the natural order of things, and actively prepare for death. In short, Marije van Wieringen’s art is about nature around us and nature inside us. You can learn more about Marije and her work in her bio on our archive contributors page.
