Under One Sky - Helen Fraser
Artist Talk: Under One Sky Saturday 3 June 2023 at 1pm
Join Helen Fraser in the gallery for a free, informal discussion about the ideas and processes that inform her work.
This immersive, playful exhibition of paintings and textiles explores themes of death-rebirth and transformation. While working as a psychologist during the pandemic Helen created paintings that incorporate the colour of the sky, drawing on mythology that speaks to the vitality of the sky as a protective force.
For Helen, the overarching sky became a symbol that helped her feel connected to others while experiencing grief, stress and social isolation and sparked an interest in how symbols can help us connect to the sacred or spiritual realms as comfort during a time of crisis.
Under One Sky explores the interaction between external change and our internal world. The artist shares two significant dreams which provide a window into how the Pandemic has led to her own inner growth. By sharing this intimate work Helen hopes to provide a space for visitors to reflect on their own transformation as a result of forces outside of their control, so that they too can honour their resilience and find greater meaning and purpose into the future.
