Intro
Art, craft, needlework and design flow into each other and my stories stand strong in a crowded and intense passion for making.

Artist list

Helen Clara Hemsley
Time Flies is an exhibition with a retrospective feel. It is about time, process and the red thread that runs through my body of work. This will include work from my time at Glasgow School of Art, where I experimented with performance and video - focusing on personal experience and endurance. Moving on to drawings and text based work, made in a sparse and cold studio during my first year in Copenhagen. Jewellery, of course, holds a prominent position in this show and I also illustrate my time at The Institute of Precious Metals - my journey into what jewellery is to me and my exhaustive experimentation with the materials, content and expression that lead us up to the present day. My desire is to present an exhibition where art, craft, needlework and design flow into each other and my stories stand strong in a crowded and intense passion for making.
