24 x 68
Patinated Copper and Resin
Helena Chastel creates sculpture that transforms metal into geometric forms and Platonic shapes. Working in steel, bronze and copper, Chastel fabricates objects that are informed by science, philosophy, mathematics, nature and antiquity. Using several techniques to transfer images onto metal of all scales, the artist imbues her forms with conceptual gravity, grounding them with steadfast formal value. Chastel has an MS in Mathematics and worked in Finance in New York. During her early years in New York, the artist took drawing classes at the Art Students League which led to making figurative sculptures in terracotta and bronze, and mastering the art of welding. Chastel lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
