WENDY HELLIWELL GALLERY
Having exhibited at Edinburgh Art Fair since 2013, artist Wendy Helliwell founded her eponymous gallery to celebrate innovative approaches to contemporary visual art. Utilising a mix of traditional and experimental media, Wendy disassembles and reconstructs the cultural symbols, motifs and paradigms that govern 21st century life in her unmistakably eye catching and tactile paintings. One thing’s for sure - the Wendy Helliwell Gallery is one to watch!
Continuing to take inspiration from cultural trends and glossy magazines Wendy’s colourful and textured works continue to evolve. Sharper and more defined the compositions continue to display a strong fun narrative yet the deeper undercurrent of consumerism and wastefulness is still present. Becoming even more sustainable within her approach Wendy is now recycling and incorporating old clothing within the actual works themselves delivering a pleasing visual yet delivering a true depiction of a growing trend in fast fashion.
