From the forward by Marti Mayo:
"The work presents an almost spiritual aura. The artist has successfully combined the presence and physicality of sculpture with painting's ability to evoke illusion and sense of place. Objects and landscape are created by the shadows that define their form: they appear almost constructed rather than painted. The barren land is visually reminiscent of the Palouse. Its rounded hills, bushes windswept into bizarre and defined shapes and the plowlines that stylize the hills are evident in the other-worldly landscapes that the artist uses to evoke solitude and silence. Helm may live in this landscape, but we have visited similar ones in our dreams."
