Helen Granger
The Talking Animal Series
New Works

You know her, you love her, she needs no introduction. She is the G in S&G Project Gallery and we are finally bringing her out from the back of the room to show NEW WORKS in her Talking Animals series.

Helen says, “The talking animal series grows directly out of my Inner Demons and other observational work. Most of the inspiration for this series comes from meditation on myself, humans, and life in general.”

“Almost all of my artwork starts with drawing. My sketchbooks are filled with creatures spouting “their” thoughts. I choose from this lot which animals and which words to make into paintings. This work plays with our cultural history of using animals as substitutes for humans in stories to teach and to explain ourselves to others.”

“These concepts and my way of painting started well before the World Wide Web and they now relate directly to our cultural need to meme. My own work has become a reflection of society at large. I enjoy the irony of making beautiful oil paintings out of simple, sometimes silly, thoughts.”

“In this new work in the series I am using my graphic design knowledge to concentrate on the text—using calligraphy rather than block lettering—and focusing on the quality of the painting. I want to grab the viewers attention and engage them in a dialogue. Each animal confronts You. They face the viewer directly or gaze in the distance but always out to you to give you their point of you. Connection through a painting from my mind to your eyes to your mind.”

Join us at our closing reception for Helen’s great work and our final show at Hatch Street.

The event is free and the building is easy to get to and has ample parking. We will have the elevator staffed during our openings and events for those of you who find the stairs in our old mill building daunting. Just look for the ramp on the Hatch Street side of the building to find it. If it is not waiting for you push the call button and it will be there shortly.
