De Verffabriek is the place where the artist Bierenbroodspot lives and works. It’s located in the ‘Spiegel’ district, just over the water from the Rijksmuseum, right in the heart of Amsterdam.
The building was for centuries a metalworking factory and it still retains an unpolished industrial feeling, with solid iron beams and heavy lifting devices overhead. Reinforced glass skylights now cover most of the painting studio, which faces north bringing in the renowned Dutch painterly light.
Several monumental paintings hang on the high walls and there’s plenty of space for her bronze and alabaster sculptures and, of course, drawings and graphics.
In normal times De Verffabriek is also a meeting place, where you could view her latest works while wandering between paints, brushes, canvases, and memorabilia.
Bierenbroodspot held lectures (for as many as 45 guests, pre-Covid), telling of her unique experiences in her archaeological travels around the Mediterranean — her months of intensive work in and around ancient cities – Petra, Palmyra, Baalbeck, Leptis Magna in Libya, and Saqqara and Thebes in Egypt — slowly absorbing their icons of the past and letting them reverberate into a new creative space.
