Helen Frederick discusses her Intersections exhibition Acts of Silence.
Addressing the endangerment and degradation of the environment, distinguished DC artist Helen Frederick’s work aligns with the philosophical approach to nature found in the work of Morris Graves (American, 1910–2001), who developed a spiritual bond with the landscape and culture of the Pacific Northwest. Her pulp prints and paintings are surrounded by projected images of the forest, light-based sculptures, and sound pieces, creating an immersive, multisensory, and interactive space. Juxtaposed with some of the Phillips’s most celebrated Graves works, they reinforce an introspective experience of art while bringing awareness of human responsibility toward the natural environment.
