House Art: Inside Amie Dicke’s collage creations at Soho House Amsterdam
The Dutch artist is known for interrogating beauty, anonymity and emotion through her artwork – and this particular collage from our 500-work collection is no exception

Amsterdam-based artist Amie Dicke’s practice is all about cutting, emitting, removing and playing with voids to create collages. She started out small, altering images from glossy magazines and adverts in the early 2000s, but has since developed a unique technique using scalpels, powder, and layering.
Part of the 500-work collection at Soho House Amsterdam – curated by our Global Art Director Kate Bryan – the piece holds a special place in Dicke’s heart. ‘I made the sketch for this work in 2009, a few days before I found out I was pregnant,’ she says. ‘I felt something was growing and coming, and I see this work as a message of that. Annunciation at the kitchen table. In 2017, I was ready to share this piece and made this bigger cut-out.’
