For Dagmar Cyrulla, the representation of the figure in the landscape has been an ongoing focus. Inspired by the work of Poussin & Titian, Cyrulla is a painter and drawer who is looking forward to the opportunity to search for metaphors in the Hill End landscape that reflect ageing and growing old. The artist visited Hill End often as a child, and the area holds many strong memories. This will be an enriching ingredient for an artist for whom candour and self-reflection is an ongoing preoccupation.
Cyrulla has a Masters in Fine Art from Monash University. Her second solo show Exploring Space was held at James Makin Gallery in 2006. She has participated in various group exhibitions and her work is held in private and public collections in Australia, London and Chicago.
