Helen Britton in context : 14 June - 11 October 2015

Born in Australia and based in Munich and Australia, Helen Britton has had 27 solo exhibitions worldwide and is represented in many public collections including the National Gallery of Australia, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

My work in the studio is a process of direct, intuitive, integration and construction, an open-ended experiment. I am conscious of what I have chosen to incorporate, but am completely immersed in my own process of reinvention and creation that lies well outside the limited boundaries of verbalisation. Helen Britton

Helen Britton will be in residence from 21 September until 11 October. In Context presents Helen's work in the context of works by some of the key artists from the early years of her development in Western Australia, including Barbara Bolt, Pippin Drysdale, Nola Farman, Gill Irvine, Else van Keppel, and Philippa O'Brien, alongside her current West Australian collaborators, Justine McKnight and Michelle Taylor. To complete the concept, works of David Bielander and Yutaka Minegishi, both internationally renowned artists and Helen's Munich studio partners for now over 13 years, will also be on exhibition. The photographer, Simon Bielander, completes this picture with a recent image of the studio atmosphere. This exhibition of over 60 works covers jewellery, fashion, textiles, painting, drawing and ceramics.
