From my series {EGG ON YOUR FACE} #vegan #eggs #animalagriculture #conceptual #cheekyingelosi
Совсем я не весёлый скетчер последнее время. Не рисуется, не пишется, ничего. Разве что можно продолжить разгребать фотографии из Норвегии.
⠀
Но, тем временем, уже во вторник я улетаю в Венгрию на пару недель. И там я всё же планирую рисовать — как раз под "творческий абсент". И радовать моего венгерского друга акварелью и налётом Петербурга.
⠀
Может, запомню ещё пару слов по-венгерски. И насмотрюсь на Балатон и цветущую лаванду.
⠀

No.14 {REACHING MECCA} - Being Helen Series #beinghelen
There was no funeral held for Miss Helen and her request for her ashes to be mixed with her precious red glass and to be glued to her owl, Oswald, was not adhered to.  However, some years after her death, her ashes were finally sprinkled over the Camel Yard by Koos Malgas.
In the local graveyard, in amongst the lofty and grandiose marble and stone gravestones is stationed a simple owl.
Koos Malgas made her this owl in memorium after her death.
"Dying isn't the problem.
Living is the problem.
That is why we must live our lives
passionately and to the full.
My agony would be to 'live dying'
without being able to work."

No.13 {DEPARTURE} Being Helen Series #beinghelen
The years of isolation, alienation and loneliness, coupled with failing health took its toll on Miss Helen.
On 6 August 1976 , at the age of 78, Miss Helen committed suicide by swallowing a mixture containing caustic soda.
She was found by her neighbour, barely conscious and unable to speak and was immediately taken to Graaff-Reinet hospital.  The causic soda caused her to die slowly and painfully as it burned away her intestines for three days.
She laid unconscious until her death on August 8th.

No.12 {OUT OF SIGHT} - Being Helen Series #beinghelen
Towards the last years of her life Miss Helen's health had deteriorated and her eye sight was fading.  Some suggest her failing eye sight might have been the result of working with the crushed glass.
It may be assumed that by this point in Miss Helen's life, life itself was losing its allure and her depression increased as she could no longer work as devotedly on the Owl House.
The was cause for great concern about Helen's well-being.  At times she plunged into a deep depression.  It would frighten her.
Sometimes it was related to her work, her sense of loneliness, her health and other matters.
Miss Helen expressed her fear of being unable to work and she suggested that without being to work on her fantasy world, she would cease to exist and die.

No.11 {REJECTION} - Being Helen Series #beinghelen
Miss Helen prioritised her artwork over her basic needs of food and clothing.  As she aged, Miss Helen progressively socially isolated herself to the extent that she would only fetch water at dawn so as to avoid being seen by others.  If she was seen on such an occasion she would reportedly bend onto her haunches until the onlooker had walked passed.
In a letter to Don Maclennan she said:
"I am shy of all people I like; 
I am frightened of all mankind;
and I am afraid of children. 
I am cursed with an over-sensitivity
- a perpetual awareness of my unsightly appearance; I prefer to avoid people."
Helen's hands became very crippled with arthritis, as she grew old.  Sometimes she couldn't move her fingers, especially when it became very cold in winter.
Helen neglected herself.  With age and the deterioration of her appearance, her self-esteem became increasingly eroded.  Ageing was a painful process.  She was unhappy with herself, concerned with her own appearance and its unacceptability.
Many of Miss Helen's mirrors were deliberately positioned above her eye-level.  She wished to avoid seeing herself if possible but wanted them for the reflections they created.
Although she would often claim that she did not care about other peoples' perceptions of her, it is likely that the knowledge that they regarded her as mentally ill, affected her.
Two of the people who were closest to Miss Helen commented that she was indeed hurt by the rebuff from others and that it caused her to fear rejection by her friends.
Miss Helen vacillated between a longing for love and social engagement and a fear of rejection.  This may have caused her to turn towards her artwork in an attempt to numb the painful feelings. **SUNFACE & WHITE CHEST OF DRAWERS - Photo taken at Miss Helen's Owl House.

No.10 {"THIS IS MY WORLD"} - Helen Martins #beinghelen series
Miss Helen was particularly inspired by biblical texts, the poetry of Omar Khayyam and the works by William Blake.
They utilised basic materials such as cement, wire and glass and playfully transformed everyday objects.
Her favourite animals, owls and camels, predominate, but all manner of real and fantastical beings are to be found.
The yard is dotted with sphinxes, Buddhas and the sanctuaries of tiered glass bottles that she called her "Meccas".
Caught in the right frame of mind, Miss Helen loved to show off the world of her creativity.
Birdlike and quick, brimming with vitality, she would usher visitors through the Owl House, stopping frequently to point out special features. **SHEPHARD BOY & CACTUS - Photo taken at Miss Helen's Owl House.

No.9 {FORBIDDEN FRUIT} - Being Helen Series #beinghelen
Miss Helen engaged in a secretive relationship with Johannes Hattingh, a married man who is believed to have been the love of her life.  Their relationship reportedly continued when he moved from Nieu Bethesda to Peddie with his wife.
Helen's long standing relationship with Johannes Hattingh came to an end with his death from a brain tumour in 1963.
His involvement with the Owl House during its early formative years was considerable.  As well as being a great personal loss to Helen, his death brought to a close one stage in the transformation of the Owl House.

No.8 {KOOS, MY ARTIST} - Being Helen Series #beinghelen
Four men who worked for Miss Helen during different periods carried out her vision.  These men were Johannes Hattingh, Jonas Adams, Piet van der Merwe and Koos Malgas.
Over a period of about twelve years, she and Koos Malgas created from her imaginings the hundreds of sculptures that crowd the Camel Yard and cover the walls of the Owl House.
Koos remembers Helen's words of greeting in the morning when he arrived at work: "Morning Koos, my artist. Can you not see what is inside you?"
Koos was Miss Helen's hands, in many ways, and worked from pictures she presented to him.
Before Koos started to work for Miss Helen on a full time basis, he worked at shearing sheep and casual labour out of season.
Koos passed away in 2000.

No.7 {NEW BEGINNINGS} - Being Helen Series #beinghelen
Due to Miss Helen's own idiosyncratic thinking it appeared as if she somehow believed that the physical light in her house would undo the emotional darkness of her childhood.
She maximised the physical light in her house through several unique ways, for instance by applying crushed glass to the walls of her house.
Miss Helen had the idea of breaking up glass and washing it.  At first they threw the glass shards on the floor inside the house, but later perfected the technique by using old coffee grinders to pulverise old bottles.
The local children collected the bottles for her and she paid them with pennies or sweets.
They tried out various methods of applying the glass to the wall surface and found by throwing it onto wet varnish or paint seemed successful. **WHITE IBIS' in the back - photo taken at Miss Helen's Owl House.

No.6 {DESTITUTE} - Being Helen Series #beinghelen
After her father's death Miss Helen was alone. Lying sick in her bed with the moon shining in through the window, she suddenly realised how grey and dull things were and how small her world has become after all these years caring for her parents in a very small town.
At that moment she decided to brighten her life by bringing physical light into her house.
The desire for light in her life is believed to represent a yearning for happiness and warmth in her life in after having suffered much pain and darkness. ***MONA LISA on the wall - photo taken at Miss Helen's Owl House.

No.5 {DUTY CALLS} - Being Helen Series #beinghelen
When she was approximately thirty years old Miss Helen's career was stopped by the news that both of her parents were suffering from cancer.
As both her sisters were married, Miss Helen was the only single daughter and as the youngest daughter, she was the natural candidate for the responsibility of caring for her sickly parents. Therefore, she returned home to fulfill her duty as a daughter.

She nursed her mother for over ten years until she died of breast cancer in 1941.
At this point Miss Helen banished her father to a windowless outside room which had no door connecting it to the inside of the house.
He remained in this room for the last four years of his life until he died of bowel cancer in 1945.
After his death, she painted his room black and engraved "The Lion's Den" on the step outside. ** Photo background - a dirt road in Nieu Bethesda.

After her divorce, Miss Helen took up a teaching job in the Transvaal.  Much else is hearsay and speculation.

She also appears to have worked in a bookstore in the Transaal; to have worked as a waitress and then to have moved to Muizenberg on the Cape coast where she obtained a position in a chemist shop.
There was also speculation that she worked in Port Elizabeth.

No.3 {INTENDED LOSS} - Being Helen Series #beinghelen
Miss Helen is believed to have had two abortions during the marriage.  Different accounts exist for her decision to have the abortions.
According to one of her sisters, Annie, Miss Helen aborted because Mr. Pienaar believed that she was not old enough to raise a child.

Both Jill Wenman (one of Miss Helen's closest friends) and Koos Malgas (who worked closely with Miss Helen) explained that she had the abortions because she was worried that she would not be able to care for children adequately.

Scribbles in her Bible indicate she may have suffered terrible doubts over her abortion/s. ***ARTWORK ON WALL (Mother with child) - Photo taken at Miss Helen's Owl House. - Artist unbeknown to me, if anybody can assist, please inform me so that I can give credit.

“Melancholy – a girl called depression” by Janelia Mould-Cheeky Ingelosi.
This is an ongoing series about depression and how it affects people who suffer from it.and the intention is to give the outsider a peek into what emotions or lack thereof such a person might feel.
The character in this series has no face and sometimes has missing limbs, firstly, so that anybody that either suffers from depression or has dealt with it in some way, can identify with her.
Secondly, to keep the viewer’s attention on the feelings often experienced through depression, like emptiness, hopelessness and not recognizing oneself anymore. This series goal is to bring a voice to those who suffer from this debilitating condition and also to create awareness.
