About the Artist
“The colours I use in my work are often drawn from a harmonious palette of earthy tones that surround me. These colours are grounding for me. The colours I choose are an emotional response to how I feel at the time, impacting on the painting I create.”
Denise Hojdyssek’s artworks take inspiration from travel, the Australian landscape and a love for mid century interior design. Denise was born in Germany and grew up in Sydney, where she was surrounded by Scandinavian design, Mid-Century art and textiles. It was during her childhood that she fostered a strong connection to Abstract Expressionists, Bauhaus and the Modernists. In addition to these profound influences, her artistic practice builds upon her experience in photography, design, visual merchandising, styling and makeup artistry.
Now based in Adelaide, Denis’s paintings are a product of a labor-intensive process of building up painted surfaces with abstract shapes and transparent washes. These are then meticulously sanded down until the final texture and image is achieved.
