Lotus Leaves – Helen McIntosh

Helen McIntosh 13th April - 25th May, 2017

Helen McIntosh was born in 1947 in Sydney and grew up in Walgett, outback New South Wales. After raising a family in Tamworth she moved to Queensland, where she currently lives.

Helen’s art career has included teaching for Evening Colleges, Textile Fibre Forums, Art and Craft Collectives and art related businesses. She has been a working artist for 40 years, learning and absorbing along the path. The ‘Icon Lady’ has become a beacon for her and she looks forward to where it will lead her next.

“My sense of space, light, little shadow, juxtaposition is informed by the open landscape of far western NSW. I work in isolation, always seeking beauty in truth. I paint to satisfy the compulsion to create.

I have never felt the need to paint the landscape as the big view, the panorama. Always, for me, the close up and intricate contains the real information about place and time.
