Helen Crawford

I paint scenes of inner fiction.

I respond to moments of alienation.
I look for beauty to find the soft aggression of solitude that lies underneath. This disconnect throws me off balance and I find myself seeking comfort in the solidity of a tactile environment.

In my work I utilize daily visual perceptions to launch investigations that are simultaneously abstract and pictorial. I am concerned with acts of excavation as a means to uncover places where beauty and agression collide.

Born in Brooklyn during a blizzard, Helen is lover of warm weather, big cities, trains, rowboats, roller skates and paint.
