This is Helen Tiernan’s first Sydney solo exhibition. Full of colour and texture, Helen plays with themes inspired by the landscape and her Aboriginal heritage, combined with colonial influences and the decorative home environment. For early settlers home was inside their houses, for Aboriginal people their home was outside, in Country. Balance, beauty and home – these are the links that inspire this work.
