Helen Mathwin is a visual artist and co-founder of Wide Open Road Art based in Castlemaine, Victoria. Helen Frequently collaborates with artist Susie Elliott to explore issues relating to connection and scale. Individually this enquiry has a post colonial leaning. Emigrating to Australia as a child she became increasingly interested in the ability for connection to place and the politics around this. She frequently explore the potential for these connections in the everyday, the trivialities that on closer examination can quite literally rupture the moment. Over the last few years her work has been primarily public, performative and/ or installation based. She strongly believes in the radical potential of public art.
