Helene Guetary, French/American (1957 - )
Energy is an eternal delight, and from the earliest times artists have tried to capture movement in some durable hydroglyphic. It is perhaps the first subject of all art.
Helene Guetary creates an astonishing representation of energy in her drawings and lithographics. She has turned the human body into an incarnation of energy. Her work has attained the uninhibited grace and flow of nature. Movement is her primary concern, and through her art we can relive in our own bodies the illusive movements of joy. Her work thereby enhances the viewer's vitality and participation with the work of art, which, as all thinkers of art have reflected on, is one of the chief sources of aesthetic pleasure.
Helene Guetary's figures bound along with an elastic rhythm, as if by sheer magic, creating an enduring pattern of athletic dancing energy with her inexhaustible succession of linear invention.
