Helen Masacz’s work has been selected twice for the BP Award at the National Portrait Gallery, in 2004 and 2010. In 2005 along with other noted artists such as Frank Auerbach, Tracey Emin & Marc Quinn, Helen was asked by the National Portrait Gallery to contribute work for their exhibition celebrating their 150th anniversary. In 2011 the National Portrait Gallery included Masacz’s Mayor Boris Johnson in their book titled 500 Portraits – BP Portrait Award.
Helen concerns herself with the issues of transition- from childhood to adulthood, from the changes in relationships over a lifetime and to the meaning that the passage of time imprints on all our lives. Helen was born in London in 1968 and continues to live and work there.
