ABOUT helena

 

Helena Roos' makes black and white painting that tell stories about love affairs, family, dreams about death and her life. The stories are initially derived from her own diary, from music and poetry but she reworks these original events, blurring the line between fiction and truth. Sometimes insignificant moments become the starting point for a whole exhibition, on other occasions serious life events are reduced to small details in a painting. The installations often include thoughts about what has actually happened or what Roos would have liked to have happened. These thoughts are not always true but there is never the less an emotional intensity and courage to the work.
