Christine Hellyar - Artist and Naturalist

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2009

I love bronze. The process is so magical and I like art that has a bit of magical mystery in it, and it's not instant...I like the fact that there's so many parts to the process and when you see people doing it, it's so timeless...
– Artist Christine Hellyar on making her bronze sculptures
I believe all my work is about the domestication of the sublime in the New Zealand landscape, and I think that's a really good example of it.
– Christine Hellyar talks about her 1972 sculpture 'Country Clothesline' displayed at the Govett Brewster Gallery
If an artist can open your eyes up, open your brain up, they're doing their job.
– Artist Christine Hellyar
