VIEW IN MY ROOM
Originally from Belgium and currently based in New York, I am trained as a mathematician and as a sculptor. My work stems from my interest in mathematics and desire to create a concept around the sacred shapes of geometry, shapes that were not invented, but found. They have existed in nature long before we have documented our natural world. In using my skills as a welder, I have been able to actualize these natural shapes into bodies that can be viewed and ultimately create awareness that our lives are intrinsically connected to geometry and natural beauty. The sculptures are made of welded CorTen steel, put through a natural patination. I use a unique process of welding that happens inside the object. The colorful sections in my sculptures are made of aluminum and are welded as well to a solid form, these sections are painted with car paint acrylic polyurethane "enamel" with a pigmented basecoat and a clear topcoat.

Helena Chastel creates sculpture that transforms metal into geometric forms and Platonic shapes. Working in steel, bronze and copper, Chastel fabricates objects that are informed by science, philosophy, mathematics, nature and antiquity. Using several techniques to transfer images onto metal of all scales, the artist imbues her forms with conceptual gravity, grounding them with steadfast formal value. In some of her series, Chastel builds up the surface of her objects with rich and vibrant colors on patinated copper plates, while exploring the Golden Ratio. For her new series, Chastel transfers images of mountain ranges onto metal to create Platonic shapes such as the Tetrahedron, the Dodecahedron and the Cube. Modular and multifaceted, each sculpture hums with bright splashes of color and divine geometry.
