Katrine Helmersson

Katrine Helmersson´s artistry is characterised by the interaction between the element, material and movement in organic shapes, often with references to Mediterrainean ancient cultures and African influences, with their myths and symbols for fertility, magic, sensualism and symbolism. Her artwork interpret impressions from the aestethic of cultural heritage. Not the least from her many visits in Mali, West Africa the last ten years, where she has been inspired extensively in her work. Helmersson works in different materials and techniques always in a poetic relationship with nature and traditions, forming the tactility and sensual trait in her sculptures.
