The Annexe is excited to present a new body of works by Helene Appel. Painting on a 1:1 scale, distinctive to the artist’s practice, the show will comprise large life-like tree trunks, rendered in watercolour on heavy linen fabric. The trees are made using a new technique, where the objects are 'cut-out' from the canvas, forming three-dimensional silhouettes. Through the act of cutting-out, Appel is ostensibly destroying painting; the canvas comes to life as an object in itself rather than an image-on-canvas stretched over a wooden frame.
