Dormice

Below are some available works by the extremely important artists DORMICE.

DORMICE's works are to be found in the most important collections in Italy and across the world (for example their work has been bought by Leonardo DiCaprio) and being resold at famous auction houses such as Christie's for ever increasing prices. The head of the Versace fashion house calls them up to do Art Directing for them or Roberto Cavalli sends them clothes for their models. This is the life of DORMICE!

In 2007 The World's Style Bible i-D gave DORMICE a giant 4 pages and in 2008 GQ Magazine put them in the 100 Best Things in the World.

DORMICE®

"We don’t want to defend ourselves against any risk - in fact, we’re looking for collective risk.
Art is a spiritual experience, an apparition.
It has led us to work together, anything else is unthinkable for us."

DORMICE is a pair of artists: Heinrich Nicolaus and Sawan Yawnghwe, from Europe and Asia.

From DORMICEs manifesto:

PAINTING

Every coloured space and every line that is painted on the empty canvas tightens the possible decisions, and as more as the composition grows, the less possibilities to interact with the painting remain. This is more or less the core of the traditional academic way of dealing with the composition of a painting.

Whoever wants to make a painting that works, seems having to follow these rules.

Today it is necessary to ignore those rules. Breaking rules demands BALANCE. If you want to break the rules, you have to deal with everything and with nothing. Nothing is the moment that does not exist, when the painters applies colour on the canvas. In this moment the only thing that exists is the emptiness.

Emptiness is everything based on the present, on the here and now. We don't look back and they don't look in the future, because we are just here, like animals, living the moment.

The strategy of Painting is the composition. We deal with it like musicians: there is a melody, a rhythm and an atmosphere, all put together makes the "glow", the secret of a painting.

Painting together means respect, discipline and awareness.

It makes you responsible the interconnection between yourself and the other.
