Helengai Harbottle: Paintings and Drawings
2-30 September 2017
PV: Sat 2 Sept, 2-4 pm

Helengai Harbottle's second solo show at Merchant House Gallery features images of houses, landscapes, human faces and still life worked from observation and imagination.
The work ranges from dark and rather somber images of houses to intensely bright depictions of faces.   The brush is still evident but some of the newest work contains a mixture of brushed and poured paint.
The artist studied painting at the Slade School of Art from 1997to 2003 under the tutelage of Norman and Tom Norris, Jenny Saville, Lucy Jones, Paul Richards, Andrew Stahl, Liz Arnold, Jo Volley and Euan Uglow, amongst others.
