Helen Phillips


Helen Elizabeth Phillips, also known as Helen Phillips Hayter (March 3, 1913 – January 23, 1995 ) was an American sculptor, printmaker, and graphic artist active in San Francisco, New York, and Paris. During her life, she contributed to various avant-gardes of the 20th century, with a personal, de-conditioned vision, which evolved from the surrealist practices the 30s to the adoption of a repeated geometric unit to express the three-dimensional movement in sculpture. Her biomorphic, hermetic imaginary, her use of positive and negative spaces in both sculpture and printmaking, and her strong, pure color, opened new paths in artistic expression.
