Statement

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

Visiting contemporary cities and looking for locations of deep transformations in terms of architectural structuring, Helen tries to find which objects represent conflict between old and new, which spaces are most susceptible to change, what are the prevalent portrayals of postobjects, how are those transformations perceived in human awareness, and which technological structures maintain their entity.

Helen’s paintings are about contact with postmodern and -industrial spaces explored through her individual aesthesis and developed in a subtle relation between minimalistic and expressive approach, where a state of pure feeling is characterized by the minimum of interpretational elements. Aesthesis is a fundamental metaphor in describing of her own interpretations representing a new mode of experience covering both perception and sensation.
