Helen Bermingham works with memory. She works with both remembered landscapes that transform into psychological spaces and with the remembrance of objects; souvenirs, ornaments, keepsakes that evoke a certain familiarity or memory. Starting with the memory, the painting is allowed to shift and change creating a new image and allowing new narratives to appear. Blurring and disrupting the image through paint, memories are both disappearing and reappearing. In this way the narratives of history are eroded and interrupted, fading and dissolving. New worlds are created, new figures occupy the space of old memories and the image becomes a framework within which other ideas can occur. The image moves away from that of a static object or remembered space into a realm of narrative and possibility.
