Helle Rask Crawford

Helle Rask Crawford works in bronze. The realm of magic realism is where her foundations in naturalism have brought her. Elements from fairy tales and myths flourish in her sculptures and between the real and the unreal, the artistic expression gives room to a duality and a depth, that allows many different possible interpretations and statements.
Presence and vivacity emanate from the figures through their movement and interaction, while humour has the effect of immediately establishing an emotional bond between wiever and sculpture, as the sculptures invite the wiever to join them in their story.
