Helen Schell: Yellow Giant

  • 10 September — 3 October 2015

In ‘Yellow Giant’ Helen Schell presents a series of large and dramatic artworks exploring features of the Sun and of solar science. Schell’s work is inspired by space exploration and science of the cosmos, often collaborating with scientists on her projects. The large paintings Total Eclipse, SUN (Rise) – Can You Fall Up?, and Yellow Giant employ optical illusions to express phenomena of space, planetary bodies and gravity, as well as directly referencing the Op Art movement of the twentieth century. Sun Rocket – Helios Rocket 2 presents a stylised image of an imagined rocket to the Sun.
