HELENA GRIMES – PRINTMAKER OF THE MONTH – JULY 2019

Monday 1st July 2019 - Wednesday 31st July 2019

The recent work by Helena Grimes is a juxtaposition of personal and social commentary. It addresses timeless themes of anxiety, humour, power and regeneration, which become infused with the artist’s inner most thoughts, mythology and fragments of her imagination. Humour is used to tackle very serious subjects in hope of making them more accessible to a wider audience.

Grimes’ work has been exhibited in various locations nationally as well as internationally in the UK, Netherlands, Egypt, Turkey and the USA. Her work has been purchased for several private collections in Ireland, the UK and the USA, as well as municipal art collections. In 2015, her work ‘Every soul has a Dark Forest’ was commissioned by the University of Limerick for their collection. The accordion book went on to win an award at ABLE in February 2016. She was nominated for Screaming Pope Prize in June 2016. Her solo show “A Fine Line” opened October 2017 in The Belltable in Limerick City.

Helena Grimes, 27 is an Irish artist and illustrator based in Limerick, originally from Longford. She graduated from Limerick School of Art and Design with a BA (Honours) in Fine Art specializing in Printmaking and Contemporary Practice in 2014.
