Marlene Von Durckheim

Marlene von Dürckheim was born on 7 December 1945 in Johannesburg. She studied at the University of Pretoria (BA Fine Arts 1969) and at Stellenbosch University (BA Honnours (Fine Arts) 1989 and M.A. in Classical Culture 2003). Professional Experience: Professional Assistant, Johannesburg Art Gallery Graphic Artist at Perskor Publishers, Johannesburg Art Teacher at two Johannesburg art schools Part-time Art Lecturer at the University of Stellenbosch Full-time Artist since 1992 Marlene on her Art: I don't want my paintings to be pretty pictures on a wall for a short time. I want my paintings to tell a mini story every time they are being viewed and in that grow on the viewer. For that reason I say that interacting with a painting is like a journey not just for one day, but for an extended time. One could also compare the interaction with a painting to the reading of fairy tales, plays or poetry that can be re-read time and again, and every time something new is discovered in them that expands and enriches life. In other words, my paintings do not have a sell-by date. I want my paintings to give a sense of quiet, of reflection, removed from the noise and humdrum of everyday life. They should expand and enrich the viewer's life and should give the viewer a sense of wholeness.
