Dagmar is a Melbourne based figurative painter and sculptor. Her list of accomplishments is extensive, with prizes including the Manning Art Prize 2017 and the Hills Art Prize 2014. She has also been a finalist in many of Australia’s most prestigious figurative painting prizes, including the Swan and the Moran.
Existentialist themes permeate Dagmar’s work, her figures caught in unguarded and vulnerable moments. There’s an undeniable familiarity with them, though they are scenes rarely captured within traditional painting.
