Helle Jetzig



Helle Jetzig moves between two areas of tension, painting on one side and photography on the other. The first being non-representational, loyal to colour and form opposed by his black and white photography faithful to form. Helle Jetzig ensures that these two oppositional techniques come together. His workmanship is a time consuming process full of effort. Photographs are arranged and printed on a wooden base and the following continuous process of painting takes weeks to complete. Ultimately the work is sanded, lacquered and sealed with a finishing varnish.
