Helen Grey


Helen J Gray Is a Surrey based artist specialising in screen printing and oil painting.  Her work is informed by the colour and light of landscapes, through which the qualities of painterly abstraction is explored by the free execution of marks. Her vision is stimulated by suggesting a sense of place and embracing the opportunities offered by her medium.

When addressing the subject of The Somme centenary her response became somber and respectful, striving to evoke a sense of reflection, gratitude and commemoration. Being acutely aware of the young age of the men involved caused her to remove all sense of movement and life. Her intention was to capture a bleak moment and allow that to resonate through a stripped back approach; an essence of time and place.
