Helen Flockhart RGI
Elected RGI in 2015, Helen Flockhart graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1985. Since then she has built a formidable reputation through numerous exhibitions in Britain, Europe and America.
Her rich, meticulously crafted paintings are charged with an arresting power. It is a power that derives not merely from the extraordinarily detailed execution of each work but also from the idiosyncratic iconography that the artist has evolved. Flockhart’s pictures conjure up a vivid world, at once familiar and strange.
Helen Flockhart’s work is held in numerous private, corporate and public collections, including the Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow, Edinburgh City Arts Centre and the Fleming Collection of Scottish Art, London.
