Jimmy – Helen Plenert
Helen creates works to uplift the viewer using colors and textures to grab attention. She generally looks to local images and people that are often over looked in our everyday journeys. For this show, Helen chose to work from a photo of Jimmy Hendrix that is not so common. He was captured as an audience member watching Janis Joplin perform as opposed to being on stage himself. Since the original image was black and white with a crowd around him this gave Helen so much freedom to play with the colors she truly loves. Her favorite medium is Water Color because it has a flow that you have to respect rather than control. She often works in Acrylic on Canvas to create larges images.
