London Based painter Aly Helyer’s artwork is figurative and its focus lies within colour and form. Her pallet is vivid and her marks waver above the canvas, teasing out a feature of a figure, before dissolving again into colour. Her paintings are suggestive and fleeting and her approach to painting is very fluid and her subject matter stems from a psychological and art historical approach to her work. Her paintings are strongly influenced by artists such as Pontormo and it also reflects upon Renaissance and Medieval art. She has been exhibiting in London since the 1990’s.
