HELEN SHULKIN Born 1978, lives and works in Baden-Baden, Germany

Helen Shulkin is an abstract painter producing works in a neo-futuristic architectural aesthetic. Shulkin is drawn to the idea of transforming large, measured forms into new edifices that are ethereal and almost surreal. She is in a sense breathing new life into what are often times seen as fixed monoliths. Her interpretations of architecture and post-modern industrial spaces raise awareness of post-urban processes, susceptibility to change and the human interactions with old and new. Parts and fragments of the structures appear in her works, never the whole building. This intentional method allows for the mind to fill in the rest and create a new reality, even if not a physical one.
