Nationally renowned artist Helen Norton returns to the Zig Zag Gallery for her Limited Edition Print Show opening on Thursday 18 October at 6:30pm. Helen’s second exhibition at the Gallery will feature a collection of new and exciting prints as well as other favourites. Inspired by the narrative of the human condition, throughout her career Helen has given viewers a smorgasbord of fantasy, allegory and humour. Her latest works reflect an exciting new stage in her journey and one that will intrigue and delight her enthusiastic collectors. CEO Rhonda Hardy said, “It is a delight to have Helen Norton return to the Zig Zag Gallery to exhibit prints of her latest works.” “Helen has featured in over 50 solo exhibitions across the world and won over 25 awards and it is inspiring to see her evolving journey and imagination expressed in her latest prints.” Norton spent many early years living in desert locations around Australia, driven by a tireless thirst for discovery and adventure. She says that becoming an artist was not a plan, more so a happy evolvement of that thirst. The Limited Edition Print Show will continue until Sunday 2 November. The Zig Zag Gallery is located at 50 Railway Road, Kalamunda. For further information phone 9257 9998 or visit email@example.com.
In the major work "The Dangerous Shores", I play with the memory of the Garden of Eden - and whether we need to return or learn from the idea of a raw and magnificent wilderness that man has not yet disturbed and spoiled. The question can't be answered fairly unless we throw in the imaginary (spiritual and creative aspects of human thought and direction) as well as the archeological evidence of our past.
