Atelier de Rijk is the atelier of artist Tessa de Rijk. Tessa approaches her atelier as a Laboratory. A laboratory where she approached research and experiments. Her own art collection is the result of a 14-year investigation that began in art school with the question: “How can I make everything I use myself?” Consider natural pigment paint, brushes, canvases, slats, and other materials. Because she thinks that Materials need to be living and organic, and therefore they demand a human hand. From her barn in the North of Amsterdam she develops paintings on linnen with Indian ink and 3D wall sculptures.
If you visit her atelier you can see the working progress and also enter her own little gallery.
