As a sculptor, the dance between form and void always interests me, not only on a material level, but also as a meditation on the framework of human consciousness. So, within my work there is often a dynamic union of opposites and a fullness of sculptural form that tapers to a point.
Red Gold: The Cedar Story by Helen Leane
29 March to 22 April 2017. Presented by Gallery 139, Newcastle
Opening Friday 31 March at 5:30pm
Through a series of monotype printmaking, Newcastle based artist, Helene Leane explores the history of the majestic Australian Red Cedar Tree.
A recent move to the Hunter Valley, to the district where this tree once called home, has informed the making of these works which celebrate the patterns, delicate layers and changing colours of the leaves of a now re-planted Cedar landscape.
