Three Nurses by Mercedes Helnwein, oil pastel on paper, 37 x 33 inches, 2011 - click to enlarge
I guess if you're a Helnwein it must be difficult being an artist at times because rather than taking your work as your own creation, you're constantly being compared to your great dad Gottfried and it takes guts to go your own way.
Despite still being a young artist, Mercedes has however proven time and again that she knows what she's doing and that she has a visual language of her own.
After appearing in group shows and solo shows all over the planet, Asleep in the Wind is a show that Mercedes curated herself for Merry Karnowsky Gallery. The show will open this Saturday and will present her own works on paper alongside the oeuvres of Patrick Morrison and Glen Baxter.
Three Nurses (pictured above and in the artist's studio below) left the biggest impression on me - maybe because the nurse on the right looks very much like an anachronistic self-portrait of the stunning artist?
