Her work at the North Devon sculpture park is Plinth 1, 2, 3 for all those who fancy voting on the Devon-based artist, who systematically subverts seemingly identical pieces.
“This series continues my preoccupation with the theme of survival,” Helen Snell says.
“Our relationship with the natural world is one of pleasure tainted with guilt, anxiety, impending punishment and a collective sense of hubris. The figures in Plinth are the load bearers. The load is a nebulous, dirty organic mass, difficult to quantify or determine.”
The other finalists are Ian Stoney, Graham Guy-Robinson, Robert Hitzeman, Mary George, Richard Cresswell, Michael Branthwaite, Ann Balmforth, Edward Baldwin, and Oliver Adams.
