Helen Sayer

My work challenges the definition, and limits, of painting, through a combination of traditional and contemporary approaches to painting practice.

Using the landscape as a subject matter, my paintings explore the capabilities of paint as a medium and material and challenge the conventions of the support and stretcher frame through processes of deconstruction, reconstruction and intervention. Interactions, such as directly squashing or crushing the paintings, physically transform the subject matter.
