'My World is...'
An Exhibition by Helen Pullen
From Tuesday 11th September to Sunday 23rd September 2007
Signal Arts Centre presents 'My World is...' by artist Helen Pullen
Helen says 'My World is... The sea and all that floats, flies and surfs in and around it. I grew up beside the sea in a small town land called Tara Hill in County Wexford, and I have lived most of my life beside the sea. I am now living and working in Wicklow Town, Wicklow has a large tidal harbour, which I love to paint. I love the sea in all its moods and especially when it is wild and windy.
The varieties of birds you find around shorelines are lovely to watch and paint. I was on holidays in New Zealand and Australia recently and I came back with lots of sketches and photographs of seagulls and pelicans, which I have depicted in my exhibition.'
Helen paints mostly seascapes but loves to paint birds and pigs as she grew up in the country surrounded by animals.
Helen has exhibited with Kilmantin Art Gallery and Signal Society Arts Group. She has also exhibited within various group shows such as The Brockagh Centre Glendalough, Arklow Visual Arts, Bray Churches Together and The Wicklow Arts Festival.
Helen will be exhibiting with the 30 Artists in the Knox Hall, Monkstown, Co. Dublin in July of this year.
Opening Reception: Friday 14th September 7-9pm
