Text by Sarah Smithson, New York Artz magazine
She takes her inspiration from vivid sequences of events or phenomena such as birth, life, sex, nature interrupted – hence her paintings/illustrations are genuinely intriguing and evoking to all.One may say; it is her unique, sensual, flirty, often humorous ”story-lines”- enjoyed and especially favored by her fans worldwide – that started her art to take off.
Sensory perception for Hötzl is a spiritual activity; one that leads to a heightened yet subconscious awareness of both culture and human nature. People call it; ”a new kind of realism”— where she combines deeply intuitive layers of text and form to enchant, excite the intellect and the emotion. In her ”poetic” work – with her bold lines, vivid colors, and suggestively figurative elements – she creates this timeless magical quality her collectors grown to love.
Women easily identify themselves with her enticing; sensual, feminine style -hence the idea was born to use her designs on luscious silk scarfs and a variety of clothings. Hötzl has exhibited her work internationally; in Europe and in the U.S and her new acclaimed style will hit the US market this summer.
Courage by H is about courage, to dare when the storm is at its worst.
