HELENA HUGO (article first published : 2008-06-14)

Recently opened at the KZNSA Gallery is an exhibition by BP national portrait finalist, Helena Hugo.

Helena Hugo's masterful painting technique and her exquisite use of light makes her magnificent work sought after by significant international collectors. In this exhibition based on extensive research within the province of KZN the artist breaks with the traditional idea of portrait painting as the exclusive reserve of the aristocracy and the wealthy.

qIn creating portraits of ordinary workers who play a vital role in society and the economy and yet are often overlooked and exhibiting them in a gallery, Helena Hugo presents them to the viewer as individuals with reconsidered significance and status.

Several major industries in KZN will be represented by portraits of their employees in their places of work, including Duys Engineering, Corobrick, SA Breweries, Hulett Sugar, Enviroserve, Non-Ferrous Metals, Natal Wholesale Jewellers, Sprigs Food Store and Frame Fibres.

The exhibition, which closes on July 5 at 12h00, is presented in association with the Art Room, Umhlanga Rocks. More information on 031 277 1703, fax 031 201 8051 or cell 082 220 0368 or visit www.kznsagallery.co.za
