Visit this transformational journey in art with local artist Helen Edwards as she weaves together her work as a solo artist with explorations in ecological art and community in Oxford. Helen’s portraits are rooted in her deep ecological explorations in active imagination. Originally from the North of England, Helen has danced and swum in natural landscapes all her life. Working to connect body, breath and imagination she traces aesthetic connections with environmental images through colour, texture and symbolic detail. The paintings are juxtaposed with underwater photography which brings exciting new perspectives to the waters of Oxford revising ways in which the vitality of rivers and lakes of urban landscapes might be felt.
