Helen Biney is a very organised artist, and the preparation for each piece she produces is a very important part of her practice. All of Helen’s work becomes part of a process; a sequence of events that link together to create the final piece. She is mostly interested in working with fabric, and each piece is cut to a specific size and shape. It is then grouped into different colourways so that Helen can carefully plan each section of her work.
The detail achieved from this thorough process helps Helen to create beautiful and eye-catching 3D structures.
Helen has recently been experimenting with other materials, combining 2D and 3D work in spontaneous collaged paintings and small sculptural objects. While form, planning and sequence are vital components of Helen’s process, the finished work always radiates joy, humour and a strong sense of playfulness.
