HELEN BOOTH

hansaviertel, 2017 acrylic on canvas  190 x 300cm price on application

helen booth graduated in 1989 from wimbledon school of art. her tutors were bernard cohen + george blacklock. in 2012 helen won the pollock krasner foundation award for painting. she lives + works in wales

booth’s understated yet powerful abstracted landscapes are, in her own words, ‘gestural images, offering a personal view of transcendent nature’. inspired by the welsh winter light, silver, black, grey and white, booth strives to capture the flattening quality of it, the way it turns everything into line, making geometry of landscapes + rock formations + distilling everything else – skeletal trees + melancholy weather - to scratches, scuffs + scars
