    SOLO EXHIBITION- "Travel Memories in Isolation"

    1 June to 30 July 2021
    Opening Reception: Sunday 13 June 2021. 1 -3 pm

    During an incredible time in the history of the world, we all came to a standstill. We were in shock. A massive pandemic had hit us and we were frightened. Pandemics have happened before but this time it felt different.

    For many years we were able to board a plane or ship and travel freely around the world. Suddenly that was stopping as we and our nation’s leaders grappled with what was happening.

    2020 was a year we will never forget. We had to social distance and wear masks and our lives suddenly changed. We were scared to hug loved ones in case we had the dreaded virus and didn’t want to pass that on. We became a
    nation in isolation. Things have gradually become better and we have been very fortunate here in Australia compared to other countries. We all coped in our own ways.

    I coped through painting. I had always travelled and my travels inspired me over the years. These are my paintings where I found solace in my own private world. Some are memories of my travels and others are still life’s, depicting the homely things found in anybody’s home on a daily basis giving comfort and memories of life before Covid hit us all. These are paintings I created and in which I still found beauty in my memories and found hope for
    a brighter future for us all.


  • Biography

    Helen Dubrovich, born in Germany of Russian parents, migrated to Australia when she was three. When quite young Helen started to travel overseas and this influenced her work which is quite eclectic. Helen has chosen to work in a variety of mediums with various subject matter, rather than sticking to one genre as she felt staying with one type of subject and one medium would lead to boredom not only to herself but to her viewers.

    Helen studied art at East Sydney Technical College and photography, then started a career in this medium after completing the Photography Certificate at Ultimo T.A.F.E.
    She pursued her career in photography but found little time to paint during this period.

  • Influences

    Helen’s interest in art was reawakened again after travelling extensively overseas and she resumed painting realizing this was her true passion.

    Further studies included certificates in art, ceramics and weaving at Gymea Technical College as well as numerous workshops in Australia and overseas.

    Helen has always loved the Impressionists which influenced her work but has also been open to learning new techniques which she has incorporated into her work. Working in oils and watercolor, depicting various subjects, she then started to expand into acrylics and pastels. Her work has been shown at various exhibitions over the years and Helen continues to strive to bring variety to her work which encompasses images which are imaginative, at times romantic and colorful.
