As you may know, Dooney's high gloss enamel paintings are now only available on the secondary market. Career Babe: High Court Judge is a classic and particularly well executed example of the artist's work in the medium. It will be offered by Menzies at their forthcoming Australian & International Fine Art & Sculpture auction on Thursday 10 August at Menzies Gallery, 1 Darling Street, South Yarra, Melbourne. The auction begins at 6:30pm. Note that the estimate is very reasonable. Works of this size and quality now sell privately for upwards of $A20,000.

"Hazel Dooney walks the razor's edge between respect and celebrity in today's artworld."

Australian Financial Review, Australia, 2006

"Peter Booth, Hazel Dooney... Jeffrey Smart are all members of a select breed of artist who, for the benefit of all concerned, cast a somewhat critical and even destructive eye over their artwork. These artists do not turn out bad art."
– Michael Reid, The Weekend Australian, Australia, 2003
