About

 

Helen Brough is an artist. B.A Honours First Class and a M.A in sculpture from Chelsea School of Art. Awards include the Prix de Rome, and the Prince Charles travel scholarship. The Soros foundation funded her exhibitions in Romania and Hungary. In America she received funding from the Pollock/Krasner Foundation and the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts. 
 Brough’s chosen subjects include urban, botanical,  sea and landscapes.  With a natural curiosity in the unconscious and how the inner is brought out through dreams and illusions, the imagery of her work, landscape or abstract, is concerned with her perception of reality. A poetic thread runs through the work reflecting the force of nature in the process of being.  
 Multi-dimensional, the work ranges from monumental installations to small precious watercolours

 “My subject matter is nature, whether it is about light, landscape or a flower I am inspired by the natural world. What I am seeking is not the real or the unreal but something intangible; the unconscious. It is my job as an artist to deepen this mystery, to explore the instinctive and to make people look.”
