Works from the exhibition


Helena Moock (b.1997) did her Foundation at the Royal Drawing School (2015-2016). She completed a BA in Painting at Edinburgh College of Art (2019), later completing a traineeship at The London Print Studio.

The most recent works in this exhibition are small still life paintings exploring a muted colour and chine-collé linocuts. The print ‘Dexter’ juxtaposes fine colour tissue with bold black and white markmaking. It’s the largest of Helena’s linocuts utilising this technique and the second print of her uncle’s Basset hound.

Trying to evoke atmosphere and tone more in these closely studied micro-dramas is something she is working on currently”… Read More.
