About the artist and the exhibition
Helen Booth lives and works in Wales. Her abstract paintings are inspired by the wild landscapes on Wales and Iceland. She loves the feeling of 'being alone in the world' when exploring and working in these places. She admits to sometimes feeling terrified of the Icelandic environment when working on her own in the wilderness but recognises that with this fear came intense creativity.
Helen works out in the open making drawings with found natural materials. She returns home to her studio in West Wales and continues to work with these materials and sketches as she develops her paintings.
In her exhibition at Oriel Davies, curated by Steffan Jones- Hughes, Helen is showing a series of large scale paintings which she has been working on for two years.
Helen's work and themes relate to the following areas of Learning and Experience in the Welsh Curriculum:
Health and Well-being; Humanities
Mathematics and Numeracy
Science and Technology
