    Domestic (series produced in 2019): In this series, Marloes der Kinderen expresses feelings of being confined, constrained like a hostage, in one’s own home.

    She is using the images as symbolic of isolation, loneliness, hopelessness, abuse and a sense of being trapped.  But especially so now that the Covid19 virus is forcing up to stay cooped up in our homes.  What goes on at such a time?  What’s it like for people deprived of choice, if there is no peace at home?
    She has experimented here with editing techniques ––  how does the image respond if you don’t follow  ‘the rules’?  And what you see is distorted by structural features, highlights and shadows.

    Marloes der Kinderen (born 1957, Eindhoven), studied Fine Art at the Royal Academy for Fine Art in ‘s Hertogenbosch. She was running in her early twenties a Modern Art gallery in Eindhoven. She completed her education as fine art teacher at TeHaTex in Tilburg and worked in the eighties at two high schools.

    Der Kinderen established an itinerary art school, Artedu, in the nineties on different locations in France, Belgium and the Netherlands in which she attracted both leading artists and teachers such as Rob Nypels, Bert Verhoeff, Marc Mildner and many others. She organised workshops on drawing, painting, photography, music, philosophy and writing courses.

    As part of Artedu, Der Kinderen developed an art-training program entitled CREAM (Creative Active Management Development). CREAM combines rightbrain drawing and management strategies for entrepreneurs.

    In 1998 she initiated a Maison d’Hôtes ‘La Grande Maison’ in Chanteuges (Auvergne, France). Chanteuges has become a permanent centre for Artedu, and also houses a atelier where Der Kinderen has finally time to return to her own creative work: painting, collage and photography.

    Marloes der Kinderen currently splits her time between Chanteuges, and her ‘winter home’ on the Island of Marken (near Amsterdam).
