Helen Garner portraitJanuary 21, 2015
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.
