A crisis can be an opportunity! During the first Covid-19 -related lockdown in April 2020 I discovered a new technique, monoprinting with a gelatine based GelPress plate and acrylics, using an endless variety of mark-making tools. I was instantly addicted and wanted to learn more, how to express my joy of life and love for nature using this technique. Now I already give workshops for small groups and love how thrilled my students are when creating unique artworks!
I also learned different image transfer techniques. Now I can combine all these as I wish, to fascinating and one-of-a-kind mixed media artworks!
All my monoprints and mixed media works are basically available - some of them only through the biggest online gallery for Finnish art, TAIKO ART. Here the link https://www.taiko.art/raxu-helminen
and some in the new ARTIKAS platform https://artikas.org/
