Renowned sculptor Helaine Blumenfeld OBE continually reinvents herself in a search for a vocabulary of form: visual, tactile and emotional. Her passion for bringing sculpture into the public domain energises landscapes throughout the world – the pieces seem weightless as the artist strives to communicate a spiritual dimension.
She notes: “In METAMORPHOSIS the references are not figurative, but a testament to the times in which we live – transmutation and change.”
Blumenfeld divides her working life between Italy and the UK. She has been the subject of many monographs and films.
