Chinchilla artist Helen Dennis provides an aesthetic dimension to daily observations, to convey thoughtful and unique provocations about regional Queensland. Working primarily in acrylics on canvas and more recently mixed media, Dennis’ artwork explores often subversive themes. Working with a belief that an artist should be prepared to explore creatively, she uses bold, colourful palettes to portray the changing Chinchilla community and environment.
Heavily involved in the Chinchilla arts community through her ongoing volunteer role as director and tutor at the Lapunyah Art Gallery, Helen regularly exhibits her art both locally and interstate. Recently her artwork Fairy Tree was selected for the Outback Way Outdoor Gallery along the Plenty Highway, Eastern MacDonnell Ranges NT and her artwork Branch Creek Chinchilla in the 2020 Flying Art Alliance Touring Exhibition Decadence.
Scenic Rim Regional Council and SWQ Regional Arts are presenting a series of 11 Arts Dinners in person and online.
