      Helen creates contemporary textile art works. This work has been handwoven and hand dyed.

      Abundance refers to Chinese concepts of prosperity and good fortune. Gold usually symbolises money but this work emphasises spiritual wealth as gold fades from each curtain to eventually reveal bared threads with only traces of colour in the final panels.

      These door curtains also reference Chinese door gods who protect a home’s inhabitants, bringing beauty, light and good fortune even in the darkest of places.
