Statement

Artist Helen Hiebert creates installations, sculpture and drawings inspired by her fascination with paper and light. Her evocotive compositions combine humble, everyday materials – thread, paper and light – to create transcendent physical environments which alter time, space and form. Both minimalist and expansive, her works evoke wonder, discovery and timeless connections. She conjures delicate spiritual environments by melding a scientific fascination with light and materials with exquisite craftsmanship.
