The Old Red Bus Station

102-104 Vicar Lane, Leeds, LS2 7NL

Leeds artist Helen Gibson, professionally known as The Perky Painter, shares her strange world of entwined forms expressed in bold colours and textures in her first solo exhibition at The Old Red Bus Station.

The paintings explore Helen’s own feelings of connection and disconnection to life around her through intersecting, overlapping forms, merging together, being both isolated and joined by strong lines.

Vibrant colours and playful textures describe these entangled forms as they collide and connect on the canvas. Where they overlap, a new colour and texture is created, highlighting these connections and their positive impact. Through the series, this connection grows as the forms become even more entwined and indistinguishable.

Helen's work will be on display and for sale in our bar area, decorating our walls with her vibrant colours and bold lines. This exhibition will launch 5th April at 7pm, and run for two weeks.
