Dorry van Haersolte graduated as a sculptor at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam.
She works in bronze, cast iron, wood and stone, as well as with Indian ink on handmade paper.

Her work shows a fascination for processes in nature and the power with which they are enacted.
Material becomes visual energy, forming traces of what once existed, and of what is still to happen and come into existence.
Ink drawings are frozen moments out of a stream of movements.
The cast iron sculpting is in movement itself, turning back into the earth through oxidation.

The works by Dorry van Haersolte are about the unreachability of the horizon and the landscape as a mirror of the human mind.

Dorry van Haersolte exhibits regularly in the Netherlands and abroad. Furthermore, the works have been acquired and are represented by several collections.
