Artspace Warehouse (Los Angeles)
Belgian artist Greet Helsen masterfully layers acrylic paint with the effervescent transparency of watercolors in her large mixed media abstract paintings. Reminiscent of abstract expressionism and lively color field paintings of Helen Frankenthaler, Helsen's shimmering pastel planes are accentuated by meandering ink lines and rhythmic pops of contrasting colors. This process produces artworks with unmistakable lightness and softness. Her artworks also include unique textures and beautiful details along the surfaces.
In addition to several layers of acrylic paint, Helsen subtly uses ink and other mixed media to compliment the fields of colors, adding depth within her works. This colorful 28 inch tall by 79 inch wide horizontal fine art painting is framed in a thin white wood frame. Size and price include frame. It is signed on the front, wired and ready to hang. Free local Los Angeles area delivery and free professional installation in the local Los Angeles area is included, including placement and hardware. An additional charge applies for installation on hard to reach walls. Affordable Continental U.S. and worldwide shipping is available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included.

In her abstract works she uses mainly acrylic, but utilizes the medium like watercolor, bringing a lightness into her paintings. The shimmering colors are transparent and are accentuated by ink lines and reflecting and highlighting large swathes of color. This process gives the paintings unmistakable lightness and softness with harmonious combinations of bright color blocks and lines set against white backgrounds.
