Statement

The formal body of my work and my visual language that I use, intentionally develops concept leaded by spontaneity and intuition; symbology that refers rather to emotions than representation, talks about an inside and outside; reduces colour palette, but doesn’t minimalized importance of the painting as a medium as rather than talks about decorativeness and female aspect in a painting as a colour poetry than a narrative story.

Curatorial statement

- Painting is Hettmer’s weapon and shield in the fight against chauvinism and gender determinism. -- “Èv van Hettmer makes painting her weapon and shield in the fight against chauvinism and gender determinism. Repeating motifs classically associated with femininity, she spins them back at the viewer with a vengeance, cool edge, and Medusa’s laughter. Pink, red, and purple colours flash up, full bodied vases casually claim their space at the center of canvasses that wear their heart on their skin with confrontational texts written all over them. They send their message back to all who keep perpetrating violence by passing harsh judgements on art as a thin disguise for abusively judging people who refuse to submit to binary norms and obsolete gender roles.” (Edith Jeřábková – jury member of Oskár Čepan Award 2021)
