In her paintings Helen Ballardie explores ideas around identity and perception, truth and fiction. She displaces characters from their usual environments and transposes them into new ones, and constructs ‘memories’ from a variety of disparate images.
She maps out her ideas on canvas using oil for its versatility but also uses a variety of other mediums including Inks, Household Paint, Felt Tip Pen, Pencil, Acrylics and Collage.
Helen studied Fine Art Painting at the Kent Institute of Art & Design, Canterbury & won the Dulwich Picture Gallery’s Open Exhibition last year.
