Helene Bauista

Bauista came to engraving four years ago and revels in all the possibilities this medium offers to express lights, shadows, and contrasts. The artist works with intaglio and linocut engraving. "My work is coordinated to literature and all kind of languages. My purpose is to suggest rather more than to say: this is why I love intaglio's expressivity and poetry. The composition of the picture and the treatment of light opens up to imagination: what has happened? What will happen? Just a few lines, to tell a story and an atmosphere."

The monochrome choice, with the balance of black,white and texture, gives a sense of the film noire.
