Helen Alajajian Headshot

Helen is a Sydney based sculptor. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Tasmania and has studied at the Tom Bass Sculpture Studio School under the late Tom Bass, during which time she completed a Master Class and was also offered a scholarship in the Emerging Sculptors Programme. Helen has exhibited in the Mosman Art Gallery, the Bathurst Regional Gallery and the Dubbo Regional Gallery. Some of Helen’s many prizes include the Australian Bronze Prize, first prize in the Northbridge Art Prize and first prize for both figurative and abstract sculpture in the Royal Easter Show. Helen was also shortlisted for an acquisition prize at Sculpture in the Gardens.
Helen has a public sculpture at Clifton Gardens Beach, which was installed for the Australian Government Cultural Gifts Programme. The sculpture is a bronze life-sized kelpie named Alinta which is flame in the Aboriginal language, in recognition of the traditional custodians of our land. Over the years Helen has modelled in clay, plaster and wax and has carved in soapstone, Italian alabaster, limestone and Carrara marble using only hand-held tools. Many of Helen’s works that originated in clay have had moulds made so as to interpret them into limited editions in bronze.

A lifelong observation and love of sculpture in its many forms have influenced my work which is at times semi-abstract and characterised by simple elements of design.
