Statement

Helen Shulkin is a full time artist based in Baden-Baden, Germany. In a search for new methods to interpret posturbanity, Helen focuses on the idea of a transformation where complex constructions of immense, larger than human-size dimensions evolve into quasi-ethereal structures.

Her paintings are about contact with postmodern and -industrial spaces where structural expressionism, parametrism, brutalism and minimalism is explored through her individual aesthesis. By examining the complexity via retakes and variations, she tries to increase the dynamic between audience and author by objectifying her innermost emotions and investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations.

Her works never show the complete structure. This results in the fact that Helen can easily imagine an own interpretation without being hindered by the reality. With a subtle relation between minimalistic and expressive approach, she creates work in which a fascination with the clarity of content and an uncompromising attitude towards postmodern art can be found.

CV

Helen's paintings are collected worldwide.
