HELEN KILSBY STUDIO ART

I draw inspiration from a range of sources, such as archaeology, artifacts, geology, landscape and plant matter.


My process comprises of an eclectic mix of adding and subtracting: controlling the medium yet allowing the accidental. I work in layers, creating then obscuring , revealing then hiding.
 



Painting surfaces are constantly multi-layered and renewed. This process-orientated method of constant re- defining allows a subject’s essence to reveal itself in its own time.


“Each painting has its own way of evolving. When the painting is finished, the subject reveals itself.”
