Taking the striking landscape of Caithness as her starting point, Helen Moore’s work addresses themes of how rural space is used in the modern day and the impact that humans make on the environment.
Helen includes everyday objects in the forefront of the landscape of her paintings. These touches provide the human aspect of living in a rural community. Never intrusive, they hint at the lives of the people here and their day-to-day activities. The landscape is the main focus, the big skies and boundless horizons that characterise this area that is Caithness.
Originally from Yorkshire, where she trained at Bradford College of Art, Helen Moore has lived in the far north of Scotland for 15 years, and her landscape painting combines the mix of urban and rural that reflects this.
Helen Moore is the recipient of the SSA/Upright Gallery Award 2021.
The exhibition is supported by a Visual Artist & Craft Maker Award.
