Hélène Jacubowitz lives and works in Antwerp. She started as a sculptress about twenty years ago, after she had followed lessons plastic expression in the “Atelier” of the Antwerp Academy by the Chilean artist and teacher, Ruperto Urzua. Hélène mostly creates in bronze, that ancient dark or gold-brown alloy of copper and tin, often with the addition of a little zinc. By now she knows the metier as no other. Her works are made with the lost-wax technique, but the artist can tell you more about the technical aspects in the gripping interview professor Marcel van Jole made with her and which is published in this monograph.
Almost all her works in bronze are as if they were shaped by light and evoke, at least as far as I am concerned, the irresistible inclination to touch them. Hélène Jacubowitz has developed a sculptural form that enables her to pass on not only a feeling of space but also of movement. Follow the lines, the form, the movement, the equilibrium. As a unity of movement as a complex of elegance it is very successful. Her sculptures are like sensitive poems, of which you cannot change one letter.
