Artwork Statement: The no.13 – lucky or unlucky?
My late husband as a young man stepped through customs from Germany to Switzerland on the 13th day of the month, found me and fell in love with me. For me there is no doubt - lucky it is! - Dorothée Heibel.
Medium: Acrylic on canvas
Dimensions: 50.8 x 50.8 cms x 4 canvases
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.
