Helena Almeida – Inside Me 08.10.09

Portuguese, Lisbon based, artist working since the 70’s. Series of self referential photographic images. Not self-portraits, more using herself as a material and performing as a character. The images are partially over-painted in acrylics, primary blue or red. Sometimes drawn onto – often becoming 3 dimensional by adding strands of horse hair to extend a drawn line out of the picture. Deconstructing the process of painting and drawing. Narrative filled – like film stills.
