Testimonials

  • “Deborah Halpern is a rampantly fertile artist... Halpern's vision is not being starved of attention. Her work is sought after by private and public collectors, and, inevitably, it has broken out of the intimacy of home and gallery.”

    Diana Bagnall
    Diana Bagnall Vogue Australia
  • “Halpern is a remarkable artist; she is a sculptor, a painter, a potter, a printmaker, and a sometime cabaret performer! Her work can be exuberant and whimsical but is also imbued with a deep artistry.”

  • “One of the challenges in this time of globalisation is not to lose sight of our Australian character. Artists must continue to forge our national identity, like Deborah Halpern, who embraces Australian larrikinism.”

  • “Halpern’s works exude an innate vitality and alluring simplicity. Spontaneous in form, her creatures are painted in a style that recalls visions of Gaudi, Picasso and the playful surrealism of French sculptor Niki de Sant Phalle, yet all have become distinctly Halpernesque in their ability to delight and surprise.”

  • “Deborah Halpern, for whom, one supposes, the medium itself and its innate qualities are subservient to the expression of ideas... Halpern’s methods reflect the sprightliness of her approach.”
