Spreading fear and mayhem in the visual arts.

Helen Pynor at GV Art, London

UPDATE MAY 9, 2011: Please see a few impressions of the show from my Flickr:

I first discovered Helen's work via her knitted human hair pieces and was immediately mesmerised by the sheer thought of working with such a filigree material.

Not only an artist, but mainly a philosopher and scientist by trade, Helen's oeuvre has truly dissolved all genres to become a symbiotic amalgamation of art, biology, anatomy and symbolism. Very visible in her Red Sea Blue Water and of course the sumptuous Milk series.

Photographs from her newest project, Liquid Ground, will be on display at GV Art London from this evening onwards.

If you like floating organs and underwater photography, make sure to check it out. If not, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING HERE?! ^___^
