Artist's Bio

Von Dürckheim obtained a B.A. (Fine Arts) and M.A. in Classical Culture at Stellenbosch University, and she has exhibited nationally and internationally throughout her working career from 1992 onwards. Her works are represented in private collections in South Africa, Europe and the United States as well as in corporate collections in South Africa. She attended an arts residency at the Cité internationale des arts in Paris in 2022.

Artist's Statement

Von Dürckheim works mainly in oil on canvas, inviting the viewer to go on a painterly journey of discovery. The works are abstractions and mainly distilled from nature and still life.

Cité Experience

The experience at the Cité internationale des arts inspired her to experiment with new subject matter and material. The river Seine and the reflections in its water were especially fascinating. For Marlene, the Seine is the life blood of this enchanting city. The light of the city is magical, and this especially influenced her work there. Walking the cobblestone streets, one becomes more aware of the atmosphere of Paris, which inspires one to work there. It is a city so old and at the same time so young; the city is indeed eternal. Paris is a reflection of the endeavours of humankind.
