Helen Calder’s continuing exploration of the properties and limits of paint as a material have taken it from the canvas, to the wall, and often away from the traditional supports of the medium, to engage with the exhibition space as the frame for painting.

Works are held in several New Zealand private and public collections including the Christchurch Art Gallery, the Chartwell Collection, the Fletcher Trust Collection and Simpson Grierson Collection.
