Feature Artist - HELEN MALONE

Helen Malone is an artist living in Brisbane Australia who specializes in artists’ books and book sculptures.    Studies in Art History and a passion for illuminated manuscripts and artists’ books led to further art studies and a focus on the sculptural and visual possibilities of books as art.  Her interests have always been in creating books whose structure and format reflects the content of the book or creates added meaning.  Main topics of interest that have been subject matter for Helen’s books are social and political comment, personal history and memory, natural disasters, literary connections and architecture.

Helen’s books were first exhibited in the State Library of Queensland in 1991 and since then has been exhibited widely in Australian book exhibitions, prizes and awards.  Her work has travelled to exhibitions in many countries such as the USA, France, England, Italy, Scotland, Japan, Germany, Slovakia and Lithuania.

Work is featured in publications by the State Library of Queensland, on the SLQ artists’ books website, and in conjunction with the Education Queensland School curriculum.  Her work has been published in artists’ book publications, catalogues and journals, both nationally and internationally.   Her books are held in many public and private collections in Australia and overseas.
