About Helen Rebekah Garber
Helen Rebekah Garber is an artist based in Los Angeles, California. Her work revolves around ideas of feminist ideology in relation to societal attitudes on nurturing, spirituality, science and medicine. Garber addresses relationships between contemporary and ancient practices to create her own aesthetic and visual language system. She uses poetry, symbolic presence and prayer, often relating to her Yemenite Jewish ancestry and education in medicine, to investigate the collective unconscious and our constant state of becoming. Garber’s intricate and cerebral compositions reinterpret imagery from a wealth of sources personal to the artist, including sacred geometry, mathematical symmetry, ancient linguistics and spiritual diagrams. Garber holds a Bachelors of Fine Art from The California Institute of the Arts and has had solo exhibitions throughout New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Mexico City.
