Dörte Conroy (b.1941. Hamburg, Germany)

Dörte Conroy is an artist based in Canberra, Australia. Dörte was a career graphic designer, and in 2006-7 she attained a Master of Art (Visual Art) Sculpture, National Institute of the Arts (NITA), Australian National University, Canberra, Australia.

Dörte has held and participated in many solo and group Exhibitions in Canberra, Hobart and Sydney. Dörte’s works are held at Artbank, Australia as well as in private collections.

In recent years Dörte has concentrated on system-based three-dimensional work while extending her interest in photography. For her photographic work, the ‘built’ environment with its imperfections is of particular relevance. Here she can find, readymade, repetitious patterns, colours and textures that inform her work.
