About the Artist
Marijke van Warmerdam (Nieuwer Amstel, 1959), works as a video and multimedia artist. She lives and works in Amsterdam and Karlsruhe.
The point of departure for the Blossom series was ‘highlighting what the image already contains’.
In ‘Blossom – butterfly’, Van Warmerdam reacts to the stormy gusts of wind that seem to be present in the film stills. She says about ‘Blossom – butterfly’, “During my somewhat energetic painting of this canvas, the stormy blowing of the wind resulted in two flapping butterfly wings.”
Marijke van Warmerdam exhibits both nationally and internationally in museums and galleries.
