June 5 - June 30, 2015
Opening Reception: Friday, June 12
Helena Rakic’s work reflects upon her perpetual affinity for precision. Helena tries to create images that are the honest reflection of her surroundings. Her work often contains the human figure, common objects or vegetation. It is always the subject that is placed in the foreground as she rarely ever integrates a background. It is this very emptiness that is void of distraction that allows for the figure to be the priority. The depleted background automatically creates a sense of isolation and forms an enigmatic presence. Helena see’s her lithographs as simplified metaphors that portray relatable human emotions, which are shown in a surrealist light.
