About Helen Gorrill

About the artwork

Exceptionally vibrant street-style neon ink painted and collaged characterful doggies instigated during a Nordic residency where bright pops of colour stands out against starker backgrounds. Each work is set within a bespoke handmade frame. These works are supersized pets, inspired by Jeff Koons’ “Puppy”, a 43-foot tall sculpture of a West Highland terrier in the Guggenheim Bilbao permanent collection, creating the piece to inspire optimism and instill confidence and security.

"I love working with pops of bold colour in fluid inks, because they’re so unpredictable, and the results are random patterns formed through water resting on the ground and causing the layers of ink to merge and flow in different directions, often marbling, often clashing. The dogs are also collaged with varying amounts of trademark papers, collected from my various travels, research and artist residencies. The backgrounds are kept deliberately minimalist Scandi style to allow the subject to be projected forwards, and the frames are simple and unobtrusive."
