Dutch Artist Desiree Palmen, creates clothing being flowed together with the environment. In the past Désirée Palmen has showed great interest in biology and geology. In drawings she added her own interpretations to scientific facts. She exhibited in natural history surroundings, and in other museums more often than in the art museums. And then only in the surrounding countries such as Belgium and Germany, as if she, argued from the point of view of the Dutch art world, only puts her work under the care of a disguised context - even before the camouflage became her topic. Hence nobody was prepared, as her work popped up in Amsterdam in full maturity. Her exhibition at Reuten Gallery impressed immediately. Désirée Palmen, who was born in 1963, studied at the Academy of Arts and the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht, showed her obsession with the natural habitat now in staged photos.
