Artist CV
Irene Van Dorssen

Irene Van Dorssen’s arts practice encompasses painting, found-object art, mixed media art, timber assemblage, wall and furniture art, installation, music performance, and computer-based graphic art & design.

Concepts for her artworks have revolved around the Australian landscape, the human impact on the environment, sustainability issues and humanity, many of which focus on population and consumerism. Van Dorssen puts into evidence the corrosion to today’s consumerist society to create a portrait of contemporary humanity within her work.

Some of the various mediums employed are oil, acrylic, impasto, silver and gold paint, aluminium foil, nylon cord, monofilament, paper, photographs, sand, cardboard, timber, metal, wire, plastic, glass and various found and used objects. The use of pattern and repetition in many of her textural pieces serves as a parable to population density, cultural integration, social infrastructure, globalisation and networking.
