Sculpture – Small mixed-media
Ceramics – figurative and functional
Wall art – drawings, paintings and objects

Life’s Journey is Helen Liz Jackson’s first solo exhibition. It includes small mixed-media sculptures,
selected figurative and functional ceramics, some drawings and also a few paintings.

In her recently completed ‘Small Moments’ series, the artist has used a range of hand-formed and
found objects, including a few ready-mades. The various timber, stone and ceramics provide form
and texture to evoke diminutive worlds. These selected and assembled elements could have a nice
balance as stand-alone sculpts, but their ‘placeness’ is enhanced by the presence of little figures in
various situations. The small-scale of the constructed scenarios means the viewer needs to lean-in
and focus down for a moment.

There is also an interestingly eclectic display of other ceramic works in the exhibition, which express
some ecological-humanist concerns and this artist’s regard for the natural world. This eclectic solo
exhibition recognises that there are many episodes in any artistic journey
