Les Papillons (Pledge)

 Artwork Statement: Our planet’s nature never ceases to amaze me. Take butterflies for instance, small and delicate and brilliant dancers. Here they are caught in the up-wind on a balmy summer’s day, not touching one another no matter what twists and turns they take.


Medium: Acrylic on canvas

Dimensions: 61 x 61 cms
Date: 2018
Condition: Good

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.
