Helen Parsons first solo exhibition is inspired by environmental concerns and comments on the fast-paced, consumerist attitude of today’s society. The futures of New Zealand’s people, flora and fauna are discussed in this new body of work.

Social issues such as health, values, addiction, population increase, empathy and apathy are alluded to. Personification is used to make connections between activities and technologies that have been surpassed and “thrown out” with behavioural aspects of our endangered native animals. Antisocial behaviours and challenges faced by society today are mirrored.

It is not all doom and gloom! Intermingled within the seriousness of these messages, Helen includes twists of humour and uses her signatory bold colour palette to suggest that while there are problems, there is also hope. That is of course, if we are not in too much of a rush to empty the bath!

Helen, and the directors of BlueOrange Gallery look forward to meeting you during the exhibition.
