Helen Lindon

Helen’s studio is on the South East coast of England a few metres from the shore, looking out to sea.

“As I make my work I see, hear and feel the sea churning and pounding…relentlessly rising and falling through all seasons and all weathers. I love it and fear it and wonder at it – in awe of its immense power and beauty. The sea defences here are constantly under stress from the crashing waves and in the not too distant future, the relationship between land and sea will change dramatically – the ice caps are melting, sea levels are rising and wild, extreme weather conditions are becoming familiar.

Climate change is no longer science fiction – it is fact, and our beautiful blue planet is transforming herself into a habitat where the human race might not survive.

My work is a contemplation of this unknowable future…”
