AIMING HIGH AGAIN
Friday, August 08, 2014

As Hazel Dooney emerges from several months of self-imposed hiatus, her art is again headlining in auction rooms. On September 24th, her large (78cm x 200cm) high gloss enamel on canvas work, Shooting Wide, from 2005, will go under the hammer at Menzies’ sale of Australian and International Fine Art and Sculpture in Sydney. The pre-sale estimate is $A14,000 – 18,000. The work is one of several derived from a widely publicised artists’ expedition to Lake Eyre – with, among others, the painters John Olsen, Tim Storrier, David Larwill and Robert Jacks – in 2001, when Dooney was just 23.

“Hazel’s independent, outspoken stance on various feminist and creative issues has elevated her as a courageous, provocative and highly successful artist.”

"It may be true that a picture is worth a thousand words, because if there's one thing... Hazel Dooney has been criticised for time and time again, it's saying too much."
