- ARTIST: Helene Hardy (helene-hardy)
- LOCATION:SA, Australia
- STYLES: Abstract
BIO: Helene exploded into the Art Scene of the Adelaide Hills early 2009 seemingly out of nowhere, and has not looked back since. A contemporary abstract artist, whose widely varied works range from her stark ‘winteresque’ black and whites; a myriad of haunting echoes and fiery thought provoking scenes of contempt, right through to the relaxed psychedelic fusions of hot pink and lime green, she has amazed her supporters with relentless passion and now stands, feet firmly planted, at the gateway to her inevitable success.
Helene’s inspiration has come from fruitful years of travel to many exotic destinations. She has resided in a variety of non-English speaking countries and immersed herself in their culture. She has seen incredible feats of architectural history, visited galleries around the world, witnessed crumbling murals at Pompeii, and experienced first-hand the hum of this planet’s diversity. Initially, this inspiration manifested itself in her cooking. Many years passed before she finally decided to pour her heart and soul into the canvas, and the result was an immediate success.
ind’s eye and YOUR imagination is what makes her art so special and different from the norm.
"Ever since I was a child I have been mesmerized by the essential unreality of the mind. What starts out as a vision soon becomes manipulated into a canvas of allurement, leaving only a sense of wonderment and the dawn of a new beginning".
