Helen Frik

Born in: 1960

United Kingdom


Helen Frik was born in Worcester, UK in 1960. She lives and works in Amsterdam. Various themes run throughout Frik’s work; Human failing, art’s inability to live up to life. Art’s role as communicator of ideas often fails. Art can be seen as a mediator, a way of getting the thoughts of the artist into the head of the viewer. Suggestions and propositions as opposed to fact. This is where the problems start. Imagery is open to interpretation and misreading.

Frik’s work deals with these problems. Our inability to communicate and art’s inability to reflect this. Misunderstandings and gaps in human knowledge. The reassuring dependability of the physical world - gravity, mass, form, material etc. opposed to the unquantifiable nature of human emotion.
