Royal College of Art graduate Helen Fay is currently engaged in an exploration of the canine world, partly because of the sheer beauty of so many dogs but also because of the presence and dignity she finds in the animals themselves.
A consummate technician, Fay’s etchings show an ability to be surprised into seeing and a reverence for life, in various forms. This delight is communicated to the viewer through an experimentation with light - the works hover between silhouette and intricate detail glimpsed in a dying light - in this sense they are melancholy works.
