Camberwell BA Sculpture graduate Helen Wilson has been selected as one of 40 artists included in the 2015 Catlin Guide.

Identifying “the most exciting new graduate and postgraduate artists from UK art schools”, the Catlin Guide selection is overseen by curator Justin Hammond in collaboration with leading gallerists, curators, collectors and course tutors. A quarter of this year’s selected artists are UAL graduates, including Emma Corrall who studied BA Painting at Camberwell in 2009 before completing her MA Fine Art at Central Saint Martins last year.

In the Guide, Helen describes her approach to making art as “[involving] a lot of waiting around for things to happen. I become a rambling observer, seeing and documenting human idiosyncrasies. The piece Carol, exhibited at my final year show,is based around audio I stumbled upon whilst standing in galleries pretending to be an employed invigilator.”

You can read more about Helen’s work and what she has planned for the future in this interview with her on the UAL news blog.
