Following a hugely successful exhibition at Klompching Gallery, New York, and Hoopers Gallery, London, Helen Sear's work comes to Yorkshire where it can be seen at Duckett and Jeffreys Gallery 23rd Feb - 2nd April.
'Inseparable' features Helen's Tale and Rice Field works. Tale explores the idea of visual narrative bringing together pictures made between 1986 and 2007. The works forefront Helen's enduring interest in landscape in relation to both the human and animal body and more recently the landscape as a living entity.
Helen's photographs became widely known in the 1991 British Council exhibition, De-Composition: Constructed Photography, which toured Latin America and Eastern Europe. Since then she has exhibited at the Hayward Gallery, London, and widely throughout Europe.
Helen Sear's photographic practice has developed from a Fine Art background of performance, film and installation work made in the 1980's. Helen is currently Reader in Photography and Fine Art Practice and a member of the European Centre for Photographic Research at the University of Wales Newport.
To accompany the exhibition 'Tale' a publication of Helen's photographs with text by David Chandler will be available for sale at the gallery.
