Helen Brough is virtually unknown in Scandinavia, which is very thrilling for the Nordic Art Agency. We have the honour of introducing this talented multi-dimensional British born artist, her evocative painting & her monumental installations.
Based in London, Helen's studio is a stone’s throw away from the origins of the Nordic Art Agency & we have admired her progress with multiple solo & group shows in the UK & US, including The Royal Academy of Arts summer exhibition. Chosen subjects for her vibrant works include urban, botanical, sea & landscapes.
With a natural curiosity in the unconscious and how the inner is brought out through dreams and illusions, the imagery of her work, landscape or abstract, is concerned with her perception of reality. Explore these sumptuous images and allow your mind to wander.
