Helen Shulkin was born in Belarus, currently she lives and works in Baden-Baden, Germany. She graduated in 1995 from a Classical Art School where she learned the academic basics. In 2001 Helen finished a Fine Art and Drawing degree at the Belarusian State University, Minsk. Whilst a student she discovered the sun – an explosive revelation – on the Crimean peninsula. Since then Helen has always been obsessed with anatomizing light, extracting its components and recombining them into a new colour combination. As a result, the colour is permanently freed from the shadow into a quasi ethereal fragility of the object, usually represented in her work by immense industrial structures. Light is all that remains. Helen Shulkin aims to represent the concept of limpidity: a plastic language expressed by transparent light. Artist Website and Facebook.
