Explore Solidarity With Wildlife Through the Bold and Poignant Paintings of Helen Durant

Born from a love for animals and a reverence for the forces that affect their realities, painter Helen Durant has amassed a body of work that is simultaneously audacious and tender.


Durant works in mixed media, primarily charcoal and acrylics, sometimes adding collage elements, such as newspaper. Her subjects are most often figures or animals. Durant is interested in the role played by the unconscious in her work, and she strives to not force the content, but rather to let it emerge out of the process of painting itself. And Durant's creative process always begins with drawing, which she calls her "first love.”
