hazel dooney

Hazel Dooney is represented in many private and institutional collections in Australia and overseas and has exhibited in New York, Houston, Osaka, Tokyo, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. Her writing on art has also been published, including essays in the prestigious Griffith REVIEW and The Australian Financial Review, and excerpts of her diary in Lino magazine.
Born in 1978, Hazel Dooney is one of Australia’s best-known young female artists. She first gained attention a decade ago with her large, graphic, highly structured, and accessible paintings produced mainly in enamel on canvas (and, later, on board).

The artist has a fetiche for shoes that implies, in her oppinion, some difficulty in drawing them, but clearly inexistent. “Each shoe I draw has be perfect”, says the artist. And nothing as an example.

Hazel Dooney, apart from liking good films as Nikita, Bladerunner and Apocalipse Now and having among her favourite books the Heart of Darkness, creates images of rare beauty. Kelly, The First Time is a set of works that shows a different approach to the sexuality already initiated in the series Venus in Hell. An artist to discover.
