Dagmar Dyck

Paintings and prints born from recent workshops with other Tongan artists such as Tevita Latu have inspired Dagmar Dycks current world view and new work. Dyck states… “The recent collaborations with other artists has seen my latest work morph into an unexpected tack in my ongoing journey as an artist. I am currently seeking an uninhibited and intuitive approach to my work…. As an art teacher and observing children paint I think, I like to paint like that… with such freedom and not labour so much on the what, the where, and the why… Piccasso said “every child is an artist”. “The problem is how to remain an artist once one grows up. This is a mantra I am following in my new work while referencing my traditional ancestry and culture”. Dagmar has been selected for inclusion in a research role in the Ancient Futures Marsden Pr oject to Europe in 2018.
