Helena Wurzel

American, born 1980

Helena Wurzel’s oil-on-canvas compositions of women—often lounging by pools or in various states of relax—articulate a midcentury concept of style and coolness in their bold use of color. They evoke the nonchalant air and formal characteristics of works by Alex Katz, juxtaposing hard-edged strokes of color into flat, pop-inflected paintings. Wurzel predominantly paints the existing women in her life and, while the compositions offer little insight into their psychology, her relationship to the content informs the works’ palette and mood. As she has described, she determines the feel of a painting and allows that to guide her ensuing aesthetic decisions.
