“Mother’s Day” By Helena Stockar

Opening Reception: Thursday, May 17, 2007, 5-9pm
Show Dates: May 15 – June 16, 2007

Providence, RI (April 4, 2007) Gallery Z invites you to join us for the opening reception of “Mother’s Day,” an exhibition of paintings by Helena Stockar. Artist Helena Stockar will be present for the event, which will take place on Thursday, May 17, 2007 from 5-9pm. The show will run through June 16, 2007.

Helena Stockar’s life tells us the story of a woman and her family who triumphed over hardship during a time of political instability in her country and became an artist who does not leave anyone untouched. In the late 1960’s, the USSR invaded Czechoslovakia, the homeland of artist Helena. Helena’s husband, Ivo, fled to America, but Helena and her two children were detained, unable to follow Ivo until 1968. Helena and her children left Czechoslovakia only one month before the borders were once again closed by Communist troops, finally settling in Rhode Island. She “paints with a passion rooted in traumatic times that she and her family lived through.” Helena’s beliefs and experiences are expressed through her artwork, but these experiences evolve from personal to universal in her paintings.

Helena never forgets her history when she creates her paintings, but her work is not only about her troubled past. As Helena’s life progresses into a less complex stages, so does her art. A theme “intertwined throughout her life’s artistic expression like golden threads” is motherhood. Her current collection incorporates nurturing images that reflect her role as a mother, created in honor of Mother’s Day, which falls on Sunday, May 13 this year.

Helena’s work has been included in dozens of exhibitions and permanent collections around the world, including the Czech Republic, Austria, France, Germany, Canada, England, Scotland, and the United States. “My art is my passion, my life’s work, not my hobby,” says Helena, who has created over one thousand oil paintings throughout the course of her life.
