Helen Steele Figurative Art

“My compositions are never preconceived, yet my themes are recurrent: The use of the figure as the means of investigating various psychological states: harmony, serenity, anxiety, isolation….I work in multiple layers with buried images and words. Paint is wiped off and layers are peeled yielding the emerging image. Symbolic markings, personal imagery, shapes and words appear, questions arise. As I work and rework my canvas the image appears sometimes only to elude me then to reassert itself much later”
