Through the Goethe Institute, Buitendijk was Artist in Residence in Dresden in 2012. Following the residency, she followed a minor in art philosophy, guided by ‘The German Aethetic Tradition’ by Kai Hammermeister. Her work is mechanical, from a single image with an origin in reality, to work whose fascination is present in art with an ideological ideology. Buitendijk is strongly rooted in abstract painting, which is literally expressed in the materials and techniques. Marielle Buitendijk is supported by the .

This square lithograph includes 12 printing passes in the three basic colors cyan, magenta and yellow. The image was designed during the printing process and has been given a repetition of the individual elements coherence. The frame and convergence of the three elements is determined by fine-tuning the press and adapting it to the limited image. In this way, the printing process is as decisive as the three elements on the stone. Before applying the surfaces to the stone, it was decided to apply the touch with a spray can. The grid remains irregular, even if the touch is often improved. This prevents moire. The grid has a fine and open structure, so that the color variations are clearly visible.

Mariëlle Buitendijk about stone printing: “I find this technique so valuable because it allows you to work very directly and accurately. It has been gratefully used by many artists throughout history. My main interest is in the work when it is not considered as a reproduction, but as the work itself. in which it is shared and can be accessible to many.”
