Helen Mirra engages with varied scrap media. Among the various forms in which she operates, there is always a locatable source material upon which decisions are made.
After a number of years making discrete works in various materials, and considering various subjects, Mirra's present rhythm of working takes the form of a kind of paced printmaking, made through walking. The activities are interdependent; the walking structures the printing, and the printing impels the walking. This rhythm is nestled into a cycle of exhibitions that perpetuates the project.
