Painted Journey 7 is oil on canvas by Helen Lindon. A contemporary British artist, Helen makes her work over a considerable length of time, and allows the period of time between each stage to study the work and enables the paint and glazes to dry thoroughly. After further consideration of what the work demands the painting is slowly built up in layers within a taut structure and a delicate equilibrium is achieved.

'My work is usually made over a considerable length of time as I forge a relationship with each painting. I use the period of time between each stage of making to allow the paint and glazes to dry and also to enable my consideration of what the work demands from me. In this way my relationship with the painting and the painting itself is slowly built up in layers.'
Within the taut structure of Helen's work, a delicate equilibrium is achieved. 'Each work is a journey of discovery and experimentation which often takes me to a resolution that I had not expected'.
