Helen Haskakis – is a painter who lives and works in Malmö. She received an MFA from Malmö art academy in 2020. Haskakis works mainly with figurative painting although her work can be perceived as abstract. Her practice is process-based, the motifs emerge simultaneously as she paints, always at several canvases side by side and during a long time. By applying and scraping off color, Haskakis almost corrects herself until she finds her motifs. Haskakis paintings depicts an intermediate state between fact and fiction where the border between different paintings often dissolves, forming a network of organisms that move in and out of the canvases.
