Jewish artist brings lively images of the sea to Helensville

Art Centre Helensville features Lilach Cohen’s 2 and 3-dimensional works, culminating in an installation inspired by her relationship with the sea.

Cohen takes viewers through her memories and passionate love of beach and bush, underpinned by her Jewish faith and identity.

Cohen immigrated to New Zealand with her family in 2003 and trained at Whitecliffe School of Art. Here she focussed on painting from nature, having been captivated by New Zealand’s spectacular scenery. More recently she incorporates sand, clay and spices in her work, loving the stimulus of all the senses, not just the visual.

The selected new paintings include works that are perfumed with spices and layered with embedded found elements. The whole is accompanied by a prayer to God ‘may it never end’ on DVD.

The exhibition will be officially opened by Pauline Denton artist and Coordinator of Art Centre Helensville

Please join us for the opening on Saturday the 6th of February at 4pm – 6pm
