White (light)

an exhibition of new works by


Wright's drawings are velvety, soft and aluring. Her exotic flowers are, literally, impossibly beautiful. They are hybrids of various types - perfectly constructed yet hollow and flat to touch.

Wright does incredible things with pastel and paper, creating surfaces and textures that leave an impression, on a scale rarely seen with works on paper.

Helen lives and works in Hobart.

Helen Maudsley's work is obsessive, both in refinement and labour. In her drawings abstract shapes are constructed from thin lines and cross-hatching, shadowing worked up through dense webs of short pen strokes. From this, fragments of buildings and landscapes emerge, caught between cylinders, circles and cubes. Patterns are formed through repeated shapes and in the fine cross-hatching. There are glimpses of an architectural order that are never confirmed. Robert Nelson has written of her work as "consummately lyrical," and mentions that they "resolve their forms with impeccable balance" (The Age, 21 July, 2000).

A senior Melbourne artist, Helen Maudsley has had solo exhibitions regularly since 1957. Her work is held in numerous public collections, including the National Gallery of Australia, the Art Gallery of South Australia and the National Gallery of Victoria.
