Marlene Dumas was born in Cape Town, South Africa, and raised on her family’s vineyard in the countryside. After she started her art degree at the University of Cape Town, she decided to continue her studies in the Netherlands: the country where she’d build her career as an artist, and still lives today. In 1995, she represented the Netherlands at the Venice Biennale.
Dumas is best known as a painter, using both oil paint and watercolour. She typically works from a reference photograph, which could be purchased, from her own camera roll or collected from print media. Her work focuses on the human body, and though figurative, she often distorts her subjects with loose, painterly brushstrokes to show their emotional state. Deeply influenced by growing up during Apartheid, Dumas’ work centres around themes of repression, misogyny, violence and sexuality. Today, Dumas is one of the most expensive living female artists at auctions, with her work first selling for over $1 million in 2004.
