Helen Ireland

Helen Ireland is a multi-disciplinary artist whose focus lies primarily around themes of memory. She is interested in exploring the roles that object and place can unexpectedly play in triggering these often thinly veiled memories and sensations. Driven to push materials to their limits, experimentation and process play an important part in her practice as she tries to capture elusive qualities which may otherwise be overlooked. Beauty within imperfection, and the ongoing cycles of decay and renewal within nature over which we have no control, also play a significant part in her work. Ireland has been concentrating particularly on the domestic in her recent projects, her objective being to uncover fragments and traces, albeit within her own personal history or the histories of the wider collective.
