​Helyer's work interrogates representations of the self.

About

Her paintings excavate the performance of character, the ruptures, tension and violence at stake in our image and the apparent conflict of our desire for a singular depiction of identity.


Sickly sweet psychedelic cartoon colours undermine Helyer's subjects, duality, and the impossibility of a unified self is at risk in the paintings, as her portraits push at the edges of the frame and dissolve into surfaces. The slippage between subject, background and foreground creates a dark and absurd tension that simultaneously seduces and repels.
