Elin Helland Artist Bio:

BIOGRAPHY Elin Helland, born 1970 in Klepp, in the county of Rogaland in south-west Norway Studio: Klepp Self-taught in contemporary art Technique: self-taught Elin Helland lives and works in the district of Jæren, where the sea meets the sky. The expansive surfaces of the artist’s paintings express in abstract form the convergence between the natural coastal landscape and the urban, man-made world. Elin’s art is deeply rooted in her temperament, and her creative expression is directly connected to her emotional impressions. Where there are contrasts, she creates balance and harmony – both in her life and on canvas. Although technique can be learnt, genuine emotion must be experienced, and the character of her paintings is a result of who she fundamentally is. In 2013, following a rigorous admission process, she became a jury-recommended member of NFUK, the Norwegian Association of Independent Artists. Elin’s motivation has always been the joy of expression and developing as an artist; nevertheless, this membership, which is awarded solely on artistic grounds, has provided further inspiration to reach her simple goals: through art, to evoke, to inspire, and to complement the set enviroment. Elin’s works feature delicate, abstract forms painted with rough techniques. From absolute contrasts she draws a balance and equilibrium, producing thought-provoking harmonic landscapes. Stormy seas, meditative light on the horizon and dramatic, intense feelings convey, in an interplay with the title of the work, an atmosphere, a story or a journey of emotion. Elin is constantly seeking to develop as an artist and a person. Her studies of Zen philosophy and the principle of Yin and Yang are a key part of this journey. The emphasis in these philosophies on the immediate, intuitive experience permeates her works, while the philosophical objective of achieving a balanced existence guides her in the creative process. In 2014, Elin received the artist`s scholarship from her home municipality of Klepp, to help her continue to develop as an artist. Guro Bommen Samtext Norway
