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.

Launch of project Helsinglight AAiR - Alternative Artist in Residence

Helsinglight AAiR is a big project we've been planning and visualising for quite some time now. We knew from day one when we  found the building for Helsinglight in September 2015 that this building would not only fulfil our artistic dreams but also do the same for many other creative souls. We set our hearts then on working towards building a creative retreat and artistic residency for others to be able to take part of too. This will now become a reality! We're launching the first steps into the build up of this project now!
