In 1978 Patries van Dorst (1960) was admitted as the youngest student at the reputable Gerrit Rietveld Academy. "... Because she was convinced that art would make her happy..."
This versatile artist exhibited successfully and
received multiple commissions. Since 2002, Patries spends more and more time in her art studio, creating sculptures in
ceramic and bronze.
An impressive collection of sculptures with soft organic shapes and smooth rounded curves that blend inexplicably together. All the sculptures appear as if they want to be touched. They are inspired by people and nature in her life.
