    Biography : Born in Geneva, Switzerland in 1956, Beatrice Helg pursued her studies at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, the Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara and at the International center of Photography in NY.

Helg's work is held in numerous public and private collections such as the Maison Europeenne de la Photographie, Paris, the International Center of Photography, NY, the LA County Museum of Fine Arts, and the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. A recent monograph, Beatrice Helg - A la lumiere de l'ombre was published by Actes Sud and Im der Schatten was published by Edition Braus. The Joel Soroka Gallery has represented Beatrice Helg's work since 1993. Over the years the gallery has hosted seven solo exhibitions of her photographs.

    Detailed Description : Beatrice Helg's art holds a unique place within the tradition of staged and constructed photography that evolved in the 1980's. Her beautifully composed abstract images play between reality and illusion. With various material - rusted iron, steel plates or sheets of glass or paper, the artist creates monumental spaces which echo with a timeless archeological resonance. In her silent universe the murmur of a latent metaphor can be imperceptibly heard. Helg's imagery endures in the mind's eye as it invites the viewer to search for and contemplate the absolute.
