Helen Reynolds is an emerging Wellington artist with a rich, experimental practice, making art through drawing, painting, sculpture and installation.

A simple line that turns and turns each time it comes close to the edge of the paper or canvas, a type of mark making that echoes some of the first deliberate marks made by humankind over 35,000 years ago, or the childhood joy of applying pigment to paper.

Variations in where the painting starts and finishes or changes in pressure and stroke, produce endless variations on the theme. The paintings become both a meditative, peaceful expression and an exploration of the properties of colour, paint, brush and paper.
