Helene Høm * Melsted By 11 A * DK 3760 Gudhjem* Tel.+45 26 13 18 83 *  besked@helenehoem.dk  * Moderskibet: CVR 40 425 748

Visual artist Helene Høm experiments between the understandable and abstraction in a working process, where motifs, colors and ornaments are mixed ind order to let subtle impressions and themes emerge - often with elements of mystery. The landscapes and the daily life around Gudhjem are used for her picturesque studies that wander between the careful and the spontaneous.

Helene Høm is the fourth generation in an artist family that goes back to Hjorths Keramik in Rønne and the Bornholm painters.

She acquired a postmodernistic and deconstructive approach at her BA- education as a performer at the Norwegian Theater Academy in 2001-2004. Methods and expressions from visual art, architecture and installation art were used in the work with performance and theatre. As part of that, Helene Høm started painting during her education, with the swedish artist Hans-Ove Granath as professor and mentor.

After working for more than 25 years interdisciplinary with art and theater - with as many hours in the atelier as on stage - Helene Høm decide to establish as a visual artist in Gudhjem in 2018.
