Lot 292 - Helen Tabor - Winter's Day
Oil on Board
A6 (10x15cm) original artwork
Bidding starts at £50
Helen Tabor has lived in the Scottish Borders for the past fifteen years with her partner and three children. Her paintings are very much inspired by her surroundings, in particular the rural Scottish Borders countryside, and the soft seascapes of south west Scotland. Whilst the figure paintings are more defined and linear, her landscapes are expressive and abstract but both styles hold something more enigmatic – a vagueness perhaps which takes you into the world of imagination. Born in Middlesex in 1960, Helen Tabor graduated with English and History at the University of York in 1981. A self-taught artist, Tabor drew her inspiration from Chagall and Picasso. Since 1986, she has successfully exhibited in numerous galleries both North and South of the border, including RSA and SAAC Royal Academy in Edinburgh. Helen’s work can be found in private collections both here and abroad.
Artist Statement: In my paintings , I use collage and water based oil to create often whimsical, textured reflections of life around me while I also paint expressive, semi abstract landscapes and seascapes of the Scottish countryside.
