DEATH PROOF

Helen Shelley

21 May 2010 to 26 Jun 2010

With a broad range of influences from popular culture to historical painting, Shelley makes paintings on perspex to explore her personal preoccupation with death in Death Proof. With illusionary perspective within the perspex, Shelley uses abstract form based on what is seen when our eyes are closed as well as images of her friends playing dead, though placed outside of the physical world, maybe in ecstasy.
