Flying High with Helen Proctor July 20 2023

Helen Proctor is an Australian artist who has just returned from living abroad in Europe. There she developed her focus on abstract landscape painting both in her studio and on large-scale mural projects.

Her current practice explores the use of colour and methods of abstraction to depict the emotional nostalgia that is revived from a personal connection to place.

For ten years she carved out a reputation within the Sydney street art scene for her stencils, paste-ups and murals. Now she returns to where it all began to showcase her new work and reconnect with her roots.

Helen's show Sky Dweller opens July 28.
