About Helle Rask Crawford

Helle Rask Crawford surrenders herself totally in the creative process. The honest expression is born through the enchantment found in sculpting. What emerges from the beautiful and manifest figuration`s is a form of personal responsibility. A dynamic act of balance in a concrete sculptural expression. The artist does not revere what is in vogue at the modern art scene. Her contract with the future is thus unpredictable, but meeting the works of the artist is very rewarding, because the ultimate freedom and pleasure in the work is so markedly prioritized. Inside and outside the domain of the time. Controlled movement is the guiding force in the handling of clay, plaster and bronze. Superficiality is only skin-deep: A sensuous joy can be sensed flowing from the artist`s fingers in the sculpting of any surface.

Reviews of work by Helle Rask Crawford

"Beautiful and Manifest

The artist Helle Rask Crawford surrenders herself totally to the creative process.
The honest expression is born through the enchantment found in sculpting.
What emerges from the beautiful and manifest figurations is a form of personal responsibility. A dynamic act of balance in a concrete sculptural expression. The artist does not revere what is in vogue at the modern art scene. Her contract with the future is thus unpredictable, but meeting the works of the artist is very rewarding, because the ultimate freedom and pleasure in the work is so markedly prioritized. Inside and outside the domaine of the time. Controlled movement is the guiding force in the handling of clay, plaster and bronze. Superficiality is only skin-deep: A sensuous joy can be sensed flowing from the artist’s fingers in the sculpting of any surface."

"A sculptor wields the chisel, and the stricken marble grows To beauty."
William Cullen Bryant
Customer comment on 'Forest Fairy 2 (Bronze Dancer Contemporary statue)' by Plamen Dimitrov
Dear Peter (ArtParkS), Plamen (artist)

Just today the package with the sculpture ”Forest Fairy” has arrived. Safe, perfectly packed. I must say “Forest Fairy” is really beautiful, great! I like her very much, her hands, her emotional dance, feelings hidden in her body. Thank you for filling my home with beauty. I wish you both a lot of enthusiasm for marvellous work you do.
