Helene has a constantly searching mind. Painting is a discovery process whereby she “receives ideas” which then are acted upon. Sometimes several paintings occur as the process/theme evolves…. Then a period of work ensues (usually involving all aspects of art eg: sculpture, sound, light, people etc) The body of work may take a year (eg: her burial / regeneration experiential project) or it may be ongoing (eg: water & perception)
It is clear however - that one body of work gradually transitions into the next. Ultimately they are all linked through: perception, the mind/brain, life & death, experience and concern for the world and its inhabitants.
