Helen Rockel - New Zealand Artist

Previous Work


"Throughout my time as a painter, my work has contained references, overtly or otherwise, to the changing circumstances of my life. Thus, my travelling experiences, the presence of my son, daughter and husband in my life, my place in my extended family, and my efforts to meet challenging times, have all had their place. During the nineties, I worked extensively with mythology. I looked at its metaphorical application to present-day life, recognising that the stories with which I worked had personal and universal relevance.

As well as the themes I have chosen to work with, I have also been asked to do commissions, such as several large paintings destined for Dubai. Others have been of a smaller, domestic nature."
