Incorporating themes relating to apocalypse, health, science and landscape and encompassing drawing, sculpture, photography and painting, Helen’s work for this exhibition is informed by ideas of experimentation, exploration and discovery in the two-hundred-year-old library’s collection.

About

Her sculptures utilise natural forces within their creation and explore the potential for change over time.  Her work frequently draws parallels with nature on both a macro and micro scale, referring to elements of the sublime and for this exhibition also connects to a sense of history, preservation and restoration sensitive to the Portico’s environment and collection.

Working with both modern and historic technology her work encompasses a wide range of techniques, such as hand-made paints, silverpoint, darkroom photo processing as well as glass blowing.
