Helaine Blumenfeld OBE: Taking Risks
2019 | marble | Westferry Circus (exterior) | Art Map reference: A14
Taking Risks reflects the continuing importance of risk as an essential part of Helaine’s creative process. Every aspect of creativity involves and requires risk. The ability to contradict her own forms is at the basis of every breakthrough Helaine has made as an artist. She feels she must always challenge her own aesthetic to go beyond the boundaries of what she has already created. There is no growth without change. In that sense each new work is a potential danger: a risk professionally as well as psychologically. Helaine never knows what to expect, she always begins without a starting point.
