helen shaddock

Helen Shaddock was born in Dewsbury in 1986 and studied at Leeds College of Art & Design between 2004 and 2005 and then at Glasgow School of Art from 2005 to 2008.

She has recently been included in: Old and New, Pentagon Gallery, Glasgow; Glasgow International Artists Bookfair, Royal Concert Hall, Glasgow; Not Your Average Evening Event, McLellan Galleries, Glasgow; RSA Student Exhibition, The Mound, Edinburgh; Textual Healing, The Embassy Gallery, Edinburgh; Special Collections, The University of Leeds Gallery, Leeds.

She has been selected for RSA New Contemporaries 2009, Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh and is the joint organiser of the Glasgow International Artists Bookfair.

Shaddock’s work stems from a fascination with organised information and with colour. She is interested in how the repetition of a controlled process can lead to unexpected results. She employs obsessive tendencies to take simple activities or actions to an extreme, often creating bizarre and unpredictable results.
