Hazel Manheimer graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History and Fine Arts. She received her Master of Arts in Art Education from Columbia University. From 2012 to 2017 Hazel studied at the National Academy School of Fine Arts in New York in their certificate program. Since 2017 she has been part of the Art Intensive Program at the New York School of the Arts. Her practice includes painting, printmaking, collage, and sculptural pieces made of unconventional materials.
Her work itself is set perfectly within the minimalist tradition as her need for order, balance, and repetition imposes an overriding template for her work. Her conceptual approach to her work is enhanced by her minimal style in order to give a more direct interpretation for the viewer. The artist’s literal references attempt to simplify and comment on some present-day issues.
Hazel Manheimer hopes to transform a chaotic contemporary world into a visually calm and ordered one.
