Marike Koot was born in the Netherlands but lives in the Corbières in the south of France, in the middle of beautiful and wild nature. Her paintings reflect her taste for colors, impressionist painting and the observation of her environment
For ICI ET LÀ, Marike Koot has created a collection of portraits of animals with a humane look. The artist places the living world and her mastery of colors at the heart of her art. Her colourful paintings reflect her passion for the natural world
Marike Koot made this paintings series after visiting a Mondrian exhibition in the Netherlands. “The inspiration came from his paintings but I used very different colours and also more relief for my paintings. The colours that I used give a very different feel, warmer colours but also darker!” M.K.
