Robert Habel

Robert Habel is pulled by two worlds. His childhood stomping ground, deep in the heart of Deddington and his current home in South Australia, where his Germanic ancestors first settled. Habel’s work is strongly influenced by these geographies, creating a hybrid world in his creativity that Habel calls ‘Deddingdorf’. This series of paintings is born directly from the polarisation of his heritage. Each piece has a ‘sibling’. One painted in the studio in South Australia, the other on site in the Deddington Landscape.
