Dorien Plaat (116)

Frans Ellenbroek (Natural History Museum Brabant, the Netherlands) says about Dorien's work:
The figures in Dorien's paintings non-verbally say: 'my outside is paper thin, so you can look inside, look how beautiful I am, not 'beautiful' in the sense of a transient physical beauty, but beautiful with eternal value, authenticity and thus with vulnerability.' That way the figures of Dorien show themselves in total vulnerability and are therefore not weak but strong, precisely because they are at peace with their vulnerability and, even proudly so, cherish it.
