Helen Brough

screen-shot-2019-02-08-at-3-08-05-pm_orig.png

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. 

Helen has a natural curiosity into the unconscious and how the inner is brought out through dreams and illusions. The imagery of her work, landscape or abstract, is concerned with the perception of reality.  

This July we are delighted to be exhibiting a new body of work, LIGHTSCAPES which is a new departure away from Helen’s focus on botanical elements to a new level of colour and light extraction.

We are proud to represent Helen exclusively in the Nordics and you can book a private view of her work at our Malmö gallery.
