Royal College of Art graduate Helen Fay’s work combines her two main interests, drawing and animals. Both the activity of drawing and the subject have been a source of never ending fascination for this artist for as long as she can remember.
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.
