‘Untitled (Street Furniture)’ comes out of an on-going body of work looking at Roman ruins, particularly the abstract potential of free-standing columns. The images derive from but are not slave to direct observation; Helen is interested in the idea of lyrical figuration. She is hugely inspired by Mark Rothko’s 1938 painting ‘Entrance to Subway’, and the work of contemporary painter Danny Markey.

Helen studied at King’s College, Cambridge, and the London Consortium before moving to Sheffield in 2011. Work from her ‘Allotments’ series was awarded a prize at the Harley Open in 2013, and in January 2015 she was part of an Arts Council funded group show entitled ‘Stillness’ at Bloc Projects in Sheffield.
