HELENE HARDY

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY
Helene’s flair for creating beautiful Abstract Landscapes hinges on her unique ability to create both tension and stillness that invests movement in her evocative and often provocative paintings.

An empathic use of colour and courage the to express emotion through boldness and restraint forms part of Helene's signature style - moving effortlessly from a gentle fusion of pastels to a perfectly placed pop of fluorescent pink!

Helene's work has broad appeal, working beautifully within a variety of interior genres and styles - Large scale works in acrylic have been acquired by corporate organisations in South Australia and Internationally, with a substantial body of work held in private residential collections.

Now exhibiting in a variety of galleries and events in metropolitan and regional areas of South Australia and the United States.

ARTISTS STATEMENT
The ever changing sky outside my studio in the Adelaide Hills - the clouds scudding past, the fierce sunshine breaking through, lighting up the distant hills, the rain clouds swirling into the valley below me - this is the catalyst for my inspiration. 

The visual landscape is reflected in my emotions and this is what I aim to bring to my art. Many layers are applied to create depth and then scraped, rubbed and scratched away to reveal the underlying story.

Education

Fashion Design at Salford University , UK BA (Hons) Fashion.
