Title: Fragments of Memory
Geraldton printmaker Helen Clarke has created a exquisite suite of works on paper that have been beautifully installed in a Coolgardie safe from the Chapman Valley Historical Society.
Helen’s work explores the fragility and durability of memory shown by the collected fragments left behind by former generations. She has carefully gathered bits and pieces, fragments on the ground, sometimes organic, sometimes created by humans - all imbued with memories. Helen’s use of etching as a medium allows her to sensitively render the ageing of the objects she has depicted.
