Watercolor artist Robin Tynan from UK visits Helsinglight AAiR - Alternative Artist in Residence

At Helsinglight AAiR I would like to continue work on my mental health series called “Inside my Brain”. The project currently has six paintings to it with plans for several more exploring different aspects of my mental health. As part of this project I want to create a multisensory experience for people viewing the work so I plan on creating a sculptural piece that continues the work of interpreting emotions and the experience of living with mental health in a manner that can be interacted with with both touch and vision.

Summertime is awesome and there is so much to do here and so many beautiful places to visit and explore! We love sharing our best "pearls" with people visiting us and to show stunning scenic spots or magical places with great history and marks of Norse mythology and Scandinavian folklore. If you wish to try some outdoor activities out on your day off we're more than happy to help you book them,  i.e icelandic horseback riding, kayaking, fishing etc.

Helsinglight-in the middle of creative everywhere

Helsinglight-in the middle of creative everywhere

We think of the countryside as a creative haven and an inspirational retreat, away from all the buzz and stress one can experience in the big cities. We believe the countryside is a great place for artistic adventures and workshops. A place where your creativity will fully boost and where you will find yourself in a process of reconnecting with yourself, with the seasons, the nature, the people and the world around you.
