Helen Earl explores the interface between form and function, nature and object and often incorporates found objects, usually nature’s flotsam, into her work. It provokes thought and reflection about how we interact with both the natural and object-laden world.
The concepts for new work begin with the experiential, the moving about and exploring of a natural space. This experience is then expanded or framed by narratives of culture, history, science and the environment.
Helen works from a home based studio in Sydney and much of her exploration of ideas for work comes from walking and gathering found objects in her environment.
