Today we shine the spotlight on Aby Helme.
Aby lives in a little rural town, so her work is often influenced by the domesticity of day to day life there. In that sense she focuses on making honest reportage from what she sees around her. She likes portraying people, or places, exactly the way they are, be the subject bustling with acticity or stillness.
She prefers to produce work through traditional methodsm charcoal and ink in particular, and she's not afraid to make mistakes. She's not afraid to draw different things either, so I try to visually explore different shapes and sizes. She also experiments with with printmaking from time to time, as she likes to keep a varied practice.
