Dagmar is a finalist in the Calleen Art Award 2023
Dagmar's painting, 'Hotel Room during Covid 1' is a finalist in the Calleen Art Award 2023 exhibition to take place at the Cowra Regional Art Gallery from 8 October to 19 November 2023.
Artist Statement: I felt I hadn’t said everything I wanted to with the images I had collected and been inspired by, over the years. Covid, and the two-year lockdown we had in Melbourne, prevented me from going out and finding new material as I had intended and so I revisited older material and imbued it with the emotions that I was feeling at the time. This painting is inspired by Hopper's 1931 work 'Hotel Room'.
