Artist Statement (Transcript from video)
Helly Powell is a Textile Artist currently based in the Brecon Beacons National Park.
She has combined her deep love for the Landscape and it’s flora and fauna with a lifelong obsession in textiles. Which she expresses in her Textile Taxidermy Sculptures aptly named Fauxidermy.
“As Humans we have a deep bond with nature, a bond that heals and enriches the Soul.
Through my work I hope to inspire this beautiful connection between humanity and wildlife. My Pieces are not only for visual enjoyment but I hope they will inspire people to appreciate the wonder of the natural world around us and to cherish it for future generations.
I like to think I’m rewilding homes by putting a representation of Wildlife and the Landscape into our every day lives.
I currently have 3 Collections all of which have been inspired
by our National Parks and the Nature and Wildlife within it.
in Particular; The Brecon Beacons, Snowdonia and the Pembrokeshire Coast.”
