Helen Garner portrait

January 21, 2015Helen Garner portrait

This piece explores the light and dark side of respected Australian author, Helen Garner.

To me, Helen is a person of light and wisdom who bravely immerses herself in the darkest depths of human nature and behaviour.

Through the process of her writing, she shines a light into the blackness to reveal the many shades of grey at play.

I have chosen to paint this piece using only grey, black and white to convey this idea.
