Helga Groves- Ghost crab markings 1999
- oil on canvas
Helga Groves' sensitive and meticulous practice encompasses painting, three dimensional forms, drawing and animation. Her works embody a rigorous but personal investigation of geological sites, geophysical processes and natural phenomena. Carefully balancing topographical patterns, colour and tonal layers to create compositions rich with movement and luminosity, which capture the energy and light of her subject matter. The underlying power of Groves' work lies in its ability to permeate the senses and minds of the viewer, conjuring vivid memories of the physical experience of place.
