Amsterdam-based artist Marjolijn de Wit creates ceramic-photographic collage, paintings, and sculpture. De Wit utilizes found images, scanned and reprinted, in combination with raw, glazed, or photo-printed ceramic pieces, to explore ideas of our relationship with nature and the built environment. De Wit’s ceramic fragments double as both raw archeological objects and architectural artifact, where found ceramics are re-cast and hand painted, alongside the artist’s own fabricated shards.
