Helen Philipp is a St Kilda based visual artist and sculptor.
Her works draw inspiration from the vibrant colours and circular forms of sea- creatures, using enlarged photographs of plankton as a reference for creating sculptural forms. Underpinning this is Helen’s exploration of the relationship between form, materiality, and colour in the discipline of her weaving.
In the past she has incorporated plastics, collected from the St Kilda foreshore, into her woven forms to raise awareness of both the amount of plastic refuse which is throw away and ends up in the ocean and the destructiveness of human plastic waste which is being ingested by sea creatures and birds.
