Helen Ferry’s symbolic and archetypal artworks gain inspiration from drawings she produces in her series of artist's books. Each drawing represents a moment in time where the whole self can be visualised actively at work. Her unique, individualised motifs are then incorporated into more complex artworks to communicate the presence of hidden worlds.
Communicating themes of transformation, redemption, flux and transcendence, her imaginative universe evokes recognition of a mythological, multilayered shared consciousness. Helen’s work has also been informed by her Greek heritage, travels to Europe and South East Asia, alchemical symbolism and mystics such as Hildegarde of Bingen.
