“For more than two decades Hazel Dooney has been recognised as a force to be reckoned with in the art world.”
– Aliki Smith, She Shoots Film, 2018

"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."
Emily Lush, Peppermint Magazine, 2013

"Hazel Dooney isn’t for everybody and that’s what I always liked about her."
Bruce Sterling, Wired.com, 2012

"Dooney has both extraordinary depth as an artist and a sound painterly technique."
Clare Press, Vogue Australia, 2007

"Hazel Dooney walks the razor's edge between respect and celebrity in today's artworld."
Australian Financial Review, 2006

"These works carry the subversive and slick trademarks of contemporary consumer culture. Her work comes across as an intense exploration of personal eroticism filtered through a candy-coloured palette."
The Sunday Age Agenda, The Age, 2004

"Peter Booth, Hazel Dooney... Jeffrey Smart are all members of a select breed of artist who, for the benefit of all concerned, cast a somewhat critical and even destructive eye over their artwork. These artists do not turn out bad art."
– Michael Reid, The Weekend Australian, 2001
