About

The Lighthouse [2021] original Oil on canvas board Image size: H:40 cm x W:40 cm Complete Size of Unframed Work: H:40 cm x W:40 cm x D:1cm Framed Size: H:47 cm x W:47 cm x D:3.5cm Sold Framed Please note that insitu images are purely an indication of how a piece may look The Lighthouse is one of a series of contemporary, abstracted seascapes exploring the interaction of light with the sky, land and sea. The use of the predominantly dark green colour and mostly blended brushmarks create a calm but somewhat eerie atmosphere to this painting with the white lighthouse as the focal point. As someone inspired by the sea and sailing, lighthouses are structures which have always fascinated me - both beacons of light which welcome you to your destination or warn you of danger. Helen Robinson's atmospheric oil paintings represent impressionable moments in her life, mostly inspired by her love of travel and the sea. Following a career in town planning, Helen pursued her interest in art and has now been painting regularly for over 15 years. In 2013, she obtained an Honours degree in Art History when she found she was drawn mostly to artists who painted light. Influences include the 17th century Dutch landscape painters and William Turner, particularly his works. Helen's recent paintings are contemporary sea and cloudscapes which have a strong sense of light, mystery and drama. Memories and photographs of travel and sailing experiences provide the starting point for her work which then evolves in a more abstracted way. She focuses on the way light interacts with sky, earth and water - both vast expanses of sea and intricate salt marshes with their detailed patterns of water channels responding to various stages of the tide. Colour, tonal blending and expressive brush marks convey different moods and kinds of weather from calm to stormy conditions. Helen has exhibited at various galleries in London including the Mall Galleries as part of ING Discerning Eye, the Camden Image Gallery and the Strand Gallery.
