Commentary


In Northern Light, Helen Glassford finds abstract beauty in a landscape of light over water.
— Duncan Macmillan, The Scotsman, 2016 (RSA Open Exhibition)
As a painter, Helen Glassford brings a softness to her work, which nudges its way into the visual memory of the beholder. Her abstract landscapes reveal a deft touch and are in possession of a lilting approach to colour and tone. Everything in its place and a place for everything.
— Jan Patience, 2015
