MU-SEE-UM | art of being small
New project! Together with Kars+Boom, Max Kisman and Mianne de Vries I designed an art box that enables you to have your own miniature museum at home. Three art works that are divided into 50 pieces, so with every mu-see-um you get three different artpieces of 3x4 cm in handmade ceramic frames. Let art connect!
MU-SEE-UM No.1 is for sale at: www.mu-see-um.nl for €166 or send me an email. A wonderful present for yourself or your loved ones! (info for press)
I made a giclée print based on a collage of a fritillary. One of my favourite flowers in springtime (although all flowers in spring make me happy), and a flower that makes me wander back to my childhood garden.

Art Print Caraca Em Cima

Specially to give some colour to these dark days, I made a limited art print of the collage Caraca Em Cima. The originaal collage is based on my trip through Brazil in 2018. In an edition of 10, the image is printed on an ultra smooth Photo Rag paper of Hahnemühle. A high quality print with bold and expressive colours.

Do you want to give the print as a present, but do you rather not go outside? I will send the work gift wrapped to the receiving party.

One last hug before sending it off. From this day forward the painting Tapijt will be part of the collection of museum Voorlinden. I feel honored and very happy that this wonderfull museum will be the new home to one of my favorite paintings.

Artist in residence | Despina | Rio de Janeiro, Brasil
2017 | November
At the end of 2017 I moved my studio to Rio de Janeiro for an art in residence program at Despina. The months prior 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!
Home - new work by Britt Dorenbosch | Centraal Museum | Utrecht
2017 | 9 September - 26 November
In 2017 I worked, with support of the K.F. Hein Fonds, 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? The research resulted the exhibition Home (Thuis).

Works of over sixty young artists were shown, varying from painting to photography, from objects to installations and from video to performances.

K.F. Hein Art Stipend | Utrecht
2016 | 23 September
Yes!! I won the K. F. Hein Art Stipend 2017 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.
Code Rood - Portiersloge | Arnhem
2016 | 21-28 May
Code Rood asked me to exhibit my paintings at the former gatehouse of Buitenplaats Koningsweg. I took the opportunity to make it an 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. Because the surroundings of the gatehouse reminded me of my childhood holidays in the east of the Netherlands every work had a direct link to my youth to recreate the happy feeling those holiday memories gave me. The drawings portray the clothes that I wore when I was a child, they are scaled up to my current size. The panoramic painting is based on pictures of the holidays near Winterswijk. For the results see Home at Code Rood.
