Exhibiting at Trestle Arts Base - Helen Lack

Saturday 13 January 2017 – Thursday 1 March 2018

The Trestle gallery Café kicks off another year of creativity with an exhibition of paintings by local artist Helen Lack\aka Handz.

Helen works in a large format with vibrant colours to produce individual and energetic artworks. She is inspired by Jackson Pollock who uses the ‘drip technique’ to convey abstract expressionism. Helen is also a strong environmentalist who paints with a message, regarding issues such as population, pollution, ocean bleaching and chaos in the universe.

She has just curated her own solo exhibition at the Radlett Centre Hertfordshire entitled ‘Natural Elements and the Universe’, which gained a lot of media attention on the radio, in newspapers and in magazines.

The Deputy Mayor of Hertsmere described the “richness of colours” in her work and was greatly impressed.

Her artworks have been exhibited at many prestigious galleries and locations in London including The Brick Lane Gallery, Espacio Gallery and Roy’s People Arts Fair, as well as in the Lift Gallery, USA.

“The perfect exhibition for a cold and dark January, Helen’s colourful and uplifting paintings have truly brightened up our café space. The abstract patterns have attracted lots of interest from our regular customers and new visitors to the arts base. Trestle strive to work with local artists and give them a platform to display their new bodies of work, so it has been a pleasure to work with Helen on this exhibition. We look forward to seeing where her creativity takes her next!” – Elaine Johnson, Trestle Gallery Programmer
