Helen Smith Biography

Helen Smith's practice is influenced by a formal, minimalist view-point with simplicity of form and geometric abstraction generally contributing to the outcome. The beauty and intrigue of her works arises from her use of colour and space makes her work compelling to the viewer when physically present. Oil on canvas paintings, large-scale wall works and a number of ongoing photographic series derived from an interest in social and cultural systems form the basis for her enquiry.
