Artwork Statement: The colour and creativity of Sydney's Mardi Gras is really the closest thing to the yearly 'Fasnacht' carnival celebrated in my hometown of Solothurn, Switzerland. 'Fasnacht' sends off the winter and brings in the spring with a lot of noise, love and laughter and I find these two events at different ends of the world both wonderfully rebellious. - Dorothée Heibel.
Medium: Acrylic on canvas
Dimensions: 119 x 87 cms
Artist Statement: I am endlessly fascinated by the bond two human beings can have, especially when they have a shared passion, it doesn’t matter if it is for flowers, food or feathers!
I like the challenge of taking two Lovers and joining them together almost into one being. There can be many obstacles and hiccups along the way, of course, as in any relationship but painting for me is play and pleasure and I find it is often the “mistakes”, the unpredictable drips and drops, the unexpected redirection of lines that end up taking my work to the place it was meant to go all along. - Dorothee Heibel.
Director's Statement: Dorothée's dynamic, colourful paintings are distinguished by her graphic use of black linework which is created using a cotton tip, rather than a brush. Her works will take form in her mind for days, weeks and sometimes even years before being produced in an explosive matter of hours.
