Helen Brayshaw

Whether it’s an abstract landscape or a carefully observed still life study, Helen is a painter concerned with process and materiality.

For her current work, Helen prepares multiple batches of hand-mixed liquid paint which she pours directly onto the canvas. The colours then collide and mingle, over time arranging themselves into semi-abstract images with no further human intervention.
