The “Solo Art Series” is a series of monthly solo art exhibitions for established artists who have a body of work to present to the public. Artist participants were asked to submit the following 3 components for the “Solo Art Series” competition; 1. Their art. 2. Their artist biography. 3. Their artist statement. These elements were evaluated and judged, which resulted in the selection of the artists who will be featured in individual month-long solo art exhibitions. This was the seventh “Solo Art Series” Art Competition the gallery has conducted.
Below is Helen’s Artist Biography, her Artist Statement, along with 25 pieces of her vibrant and colorful paintings. We hope that you will take the time to read Helen’s information and to take a look at her wonderful & expressive “healing arts.”
Helen Kagan, PhD. a holistic therapist and artist, believes that art heals, and that now more than ever, World needs the positive energy and spiritually-based intentions, beliefs and values. Her unique technique and style “Healing Arts" integrates Fine Art and Art of Healing, and through healing frequencies of color, positively charged intention, embedded spiritual messages, and energetically balanced composition can enhance well-being in a viewer.
Helen was born in a cold Siberian winter in what then was the USSR. Growing up in a Communist State where oppression and control were a daily reality, had formed her beliefs, values, and a great respect for freedom to express yourself. In 1991 her quest led her to the US, whereto she brought her Jewish heritage, a couple of graduate degrees, and an unending thirst to explore the World and its meaning.
Mainly self-taught Helen’s been painting for as long as she remembers since 2005 does it professionally. She works with oils and acrylics, experimenting with mixed mediums. Her healing art is better experienced “in-person” due to live vibrations of bright colors, heavy textures, usually large size, and just an overall charisma and liveliness.
In the last several years Helen participated in over 50 Juried shows, local, national and international exhibitions, including SPECTRUM Art Basel Miami 2016-15-14-13; Art San Diego 2015-14; Art EXPO NY 2017-16-15-14; Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series 2016-15-14; ART HOP VT 2016-15-14-13; CONTINUUM & Art Synergy @ Art Palm Beach 2016-15-14-13; and others. Her “Healing Arts” won awards, was exhibited in NY, NJ, VT, WI, MN, CA, and many cities in FL. She was named a "Collectible Artist 2016" by Brickell and Key Biscayne Magazines ("Dealer's Dozen" Dec. 2016).
Dr. Kagan envisions her art to be placed in Medical Centers, Multicultural Centers, Hospitals, Libraries and Crisis Centers – anywhere it can enhance healing and promote well-being.
She shares the belief that art is a catalyst for healing individuals, society and the environment. She feels being privileged to be among visionary artists, and to share her "Healing Arts".
I believe art heals. A holistic therapist and artist, I've been developing my unique technique and style “Healing Arts” which can become a vehicle for emotional, physical, mental and spiritual well-being, and enhance healing to those in need.
Coming from a family of scientists I've always been fascinated by the left and right brain relationship which led me to study many things - from mathematics and science to psychology, therapy and healing to fine art, and finally create my unique venue "Healing Arts". It reflects my own deep view on Life, a desire to bridge Realities and heal the Past. Communicating on subliminal levels my art delivers this message through positively charged intention, healing frequencies of color, embedded spiritual messages, energetically balanced composition, and brings you in touch with your own Journey.
My canvases are influenced by impressionism and expressionism. They are bold, passionate, colorful, vibrant, all – intuitive. I donate some of my art to charities, Hospice, people, and organizations where I feel it is needed.
I believe for many of us, creatives, art is a spiritual path, a transformational process, a way of being. My “Healing Arts” is my unique way to synergistically bring together fine art, expressive arts, and the art of healing to enhance well-being in a viewer.
I believe in the interconnectedness of mind, body, and spirit. I believe art is a catalyst for healing individuals, society and the environment.
I believe that now, more than ever, the World needs a positive energy and spiritually-based intentions, beliefs and values.
My passionate “Healing Arts” is a statement of all my beliefs. www.helenkagan.com

Coming from a family of scientists, Helen has always been fascinated by the left and right brain relationship. A holistic therapist and artist, she's been developing her unique technique and style as “Healing Arts” which reflects her own deep introspective view on life, a desire to bridge realities and heal the Past. She considers it as her unique way to integrate Fine Art and the Art of Healing.
Helen Kagan, PhD. was born in a cold Siberian winter in what then was the USSR. She grew up in a Communist State where oppression and control were a daily reality. In 1991 her quest for freedom led Helen to the US, whereto she brought her Jewish heritage, a couple of graduate degrees, and an unending thirst to explore the World and its meaning.
Mainly self-taught Helen's been painting for as long as she remembers herself, since 2005 does it professionally. Helen works with oils and acrylics, lately is experimenting with mixed media. Her canvases are influenced by impressionism and expressionism, they are varied and vibrant, some are raw, some refined, all are intuitive. They are bridges to the past, cities in the rain, street lights, domes, oceans, fields of sunflowers, moons, clouds, sunsets... But, there are always spiritual messages present in all of them: being on your Journey, going towards the Light, following your Path, self-reflection, awareness of 'Here and Now', and of course - 'j'oie de vivre'!
Sometimes messages are hidden, spoken indirectly, in a symbolic form, but often times – they are expressed quite loud, with bold bright colors, sort of “right in your face”. You just can't avoid seeing these [messages] if you are looking for some answers... If you are a seeker on a Quest, or just seeking some understanding about quintessential questions like who we are? Why we are here? Where are we going? - Then you might find very rewarding to meditate with Helen's paintings. They are better experienced “in-person” due to live vibrations of bright colors, heavy textures, usually large size, and just an overall charisma and liveliness.
Helen believes that art as a powerful form of self-expression can become a vehicle for emotional, physical, mental and spiritual well-being, and can enhance healing to those in need. She envisions her “Healing Arts” to be placed in Medical Centers, Multicultural Centers, Hospitals, offices, libraries, Crisis Centers... - wherever it can promote well-being.
She donated many of her artwork to charities, Hospice and other organizations and individuals. In her Artist Statement Helen says – “I believe that art heals. I believe in interconnectedness of physical, mental, and spiritual. I am a Healing Artist creating and sharing my unique art for inspiration, healing, transformation, and ... just for your good mood”.
As a therapist and artist she believes that tragedy, trauma and pain can be healed with beauty, positive energy, self-expression. Helen believes in mind-body-spirit connection and her passionate art is a statement of all her beliefs. For more information www.HelenKagan.com and helenkaganhealingarts.blog
