Hellstrom’s precision brushwork gives physical expression to an inner state of being. Investigating the dichotomy between thought and emotion she captures the energy of how experience dwells in the constancy of change despite our desire for permanence. That curious space in her work is ripe with complexity, painted in flowing color deeply felt and ever changing. Inspired by travel to remote regions of India, Europe and China then back to the metropolitan streets of the US, she finds balance and stability within chaos. Her seamless method of applying ink with unlikely brushes to a slick surface records the ephemeral moment or the spark of experience.
