Residency Year: 2020

Lives / Works: Australia

Helen Wyatt is a visual artist who makes wearable landscapes. Her pieces are constructed using the skills and techniques of jewellery. She explores the layers of human impact embodied in place and her work reveals these layers both explicitly and with subtlety. While observed landscape is the material she works with, she is also interested in what lies beneath the surface: how the land is viewed and by whom; how it has been carved up and the traces of habitation that remain. She is interested in asking questions about and imagining the places in which she finds herself.

For Wyatt, her residency at Bundanon was used to explore the Bundanon landscape and its many stories. In particular, she researched the ways in which this place has been represented visually and through narrative.
