Helen Seligman’s work renders the invisible visible. Moving between internal and external landscapes, her work pays homage to the Central Victorian landscape – its natural curvatures and man-made interventions, new and decaying. In Untitled (Red Bird), Seligman presses packaging adorned with leaves to the page. A red bird, reminiscent of lips, perches on its edge. The man-made and natural, waste and renewal, hang in balance.

Untitled (Red Bird) forms part of ‘Footprints’, a suite of prints by sixteen Central Victorian artists that coincided with the international printmaking conference IMPACT 7 2011: Intersections & Counterpoints’. Exploring themes of sustainability, reconstitution and recycling, ‘Footprints’ celebrated the Central Victorian landscape, experimental printmaking and the importance of conservation.

Seligman is a highly respected artist, represented at the Johnston Collection and Castlemaine Regional Art Gallery. For collectors of contemporary prints, ‘Untitled (Red Bird)’ is a catch.
