Helen Grey-Smith

UWA Publishing


Told in the artist’s own words via a series of interviews, this revealing biography of Helen Grey-Smith examines the dignified artist’s fascinating life. In this book author Gwen Phillips gives us the rare opportunity to listen to an artist speaking their thoughts directly and to learn about their methods of working. Grey-Smith was an accomplished artist with a lively and cultivated mind; she had lived through fascinating times: of the British Raj in India, life at an English boarding school, design school training in London and then working in England during World War II. In the 1950s to 1970s, she and her husband, Guy Grey-Smith, were very prominent in the visual arts scene in Western Australia. Helen Grey-Smith believed that works of art should be able to stand without explanation, and while hers certainly do, this book, linking the progress of her work to her life story, will assist in a deeper understanding of her work
