Helena Sinclair began her art practice studying ceramics. While using clay as the foundation of her works, more recently she has begun incorporating materials such as hair, bones and metal. Helena creates sculptures with perceived functionality or familiarity to investigate the societal ideals of beauty, fragility, feminism, and the uncanny. Through the use of abject and manipulated materials, her works evoke a synchronous sense of haunting unease and beauty.
A catalogue essay written by Tahney Fosdike will be available at the exhibition.
Join us in celebrating Helena's work, exhibited as part of our 2021 Solo Exhibition Program.
This exhibition has been proudly supported by Moreland City Council through the 2020 Flourish: Arts Recovery Grant Program.
