Based in Oxfordshire, Helen Slater Stokes’ artwork draws inspiration from the figurative and its perception within changing environments. Her work explores the creation of the 3D or spatial image, within glass, and the notion of glass as a facilitator, in working with and challenging our perception of space. Works address traditional artistic spatial illusionary methods, via drawing, such as perspective and tonality in order to create virtual landscapes that capture and preserve this space. These unique glass pieces vary in scale from dramatic life size figures, to be displayed outdoors, to delicate table top casts for interiors.
In addition, Helen has recently embarked on a practice-based research PhD in glass, at The Royal College of Art, in order to develop her practice further. Here she examines contemporary devices such as lenticular print and lens technology to create a new spatial visual language
