Helen Harrison - Public ArtMy work as an artist within the community has involved me in a wide range of activities including large-scale permanent sculptures, one-day workshops, school residencies and performance art.
The common thread for all my projects is an emphasis on the positive role art can play in all aspects of life. I seek to promote an open approach to all art-based activities, and actively encourage greater understanding and participation by all.
In a community context the role an artist plays is that of catalyst: drawing people together, generating enthusiasm and creating a dymamic environment in which collaborative ideas can flow.
I enjoy the challenge of producing a piece of work for a particular group, individual or site. I aim to involve people in visually enhancing their own environment, be that a school, park, office or home.
I am constantly looking for new opportunities and commissions.
