Layered creations by emerging paper & textile print artist Heleena Arabatzis.
Having studied Interior Architecture and Fashion, it was not until her stint as a lampshade maker that Heleena became passionate about textile design. She draws on her multi-disciplinary aesthetic to produce artworks on paper for hand screen or digital printing interpretation onto natural fibres. Ulterior Motif grew from an innate expression to translate this creative process by transcending flat surfaces through creating a considered collection of interior wares.
True to Heleena’s own art practice, Ulterior Motif embraces a culmination of materials, techniques & forms. Current fixations include: tissue paper, wax resists & verdigris. All workmanship and materials have either been fabricated by Heleena herself or by other talented local folk & companies within Australia - the majority located in Sydney.
