Helen's practice is concerned with a phenomenological experience of space and place and how this can be translated through visual arts.

She works with ceramics, paper and site-specific pinhole photographic installations to explore our perception of space and place.

 

Phenomenology is the study of “phenomena”: things as they appear in our experience, or the ways we experience things, thus the meanings things have in our experience. Phenomenology studies conscious experience as experienced from the subjective or first person point of view. (S.E.P 2013)

 

Helen’s current body of work uses vintage maps and guides to present sculptural geo-historic collections. The resulting artworks have been extensively researched and collected, bringing together elements of place; the small details merging past with present. They are revised geographies,inviting the viewer to consider their own interaction and experience of a place

 

She is being represented by Rostra Gallery at the Hampstead Affordable Art Fair 16th-19th June 2016
