Graham, Helen


My work reflects my fascination with signs, symbols mythology and advertising; it’s an exploration of how these visual remains enter the present; what persists and what gets reinterpreted, misinterpreted and edited. I collect familiar signs and try to use them in new ways. For instance the Dove image uses altered versions of the Indonesian State postal symbol that connect it with Christian images like a hybrid advert and the hand has left it’s religious context to become a global lucky charm. I use Southern Ice porcelain body, press moulded into semi-circular forms, adding handles and necks then working with Inlay, Shellac Resist and final applications of hand made transfers.
