Helena Hadjioannou and Mark Judson – MINDScapes
04 December 2010 - 27 February 2011

Structure, texture, form and space, these are factures that link both of these two artists' work. The canvas is used as an expression of an inner world in that intuition and impulse are important during the working process. Both artists create texture by the use of sand and earth. Helena uses oils and Mark uses glass, sawdust, acrylics inks and oils, and although both artists use a similar way of working the final outcome is quite different. Mark's work is colourful and open to interpretation, capturing a frozen moment of being and becoming. Helena's work is less abstract; she uses structure within a natural environment as a metaphor for humanities constant dance with nature. The textured surface of each piece invites the viewer to enjoy not only what the work depicts but also the materiality and surface of the work itself. A mutual respect for each others work has made them decide that it would be exciting to have an exhibition together. Mark and Helena first met back in 2001 when Helena exhibited work at the Pelican Gallery where Mark was Director of Art at the Perse School.

Helena was born in Cyprus and moved to London as a young child with her parents and 5 siblings. She married and moved with her husband to Cambridge where she has been living ever since. She has always had a love for Art but due to other commitments was not able to fulfil her dream until she was an adult. She decided to follow her heart and enrolled at art college (AHEC) Cambridge where she did a foundation course in Art and Design. This then led her to study at Central St Martins in London for a BA (Hons) in Fine Art, which she received in 1996. She has been exhibiting her paintings and digital artwork as a solo artist and in groups locally and in London, has had a solo exhibition in Cyprus last year and has been showing her work with Cambridge Open Studios for the past 11 years. Her work can be seen in private collections locally, nationally and abroad in Cyprus, Brazil, Belgium, USA, and Australia.
