Hot Press

Today's edition of the Australian Financial Review, the country's leading national business newspaper, reprinted my autobiographical essay from the Griffith REVIEW, retitling it with a long and almost post-modern sentence – In front is a precipice, behind are wolves: Hazel Dooney walks the razor's edge between respect and celebrity in today's art world – and giving it a double page spread. I am pretty sure I'm the first Australian artist to be featured in this way.
Despite my tendency to deprecate my own achievements, I can't help but love the implication in the headline that I have both respect and celebrity.
