John uses a light touch when he paints, relishing in the negative space that adds glow to a person’s face or brightness to their eyes. His paintings are the equivalent to an afternoon spent lounging in bed, memorizing the way sunlight spills across the neck or the bones that accentuate one’s elbow stick out when bent.

Helfgott’s frontal and contained perspective allows for an angular dimension within the frame, suggesting a life outside of the box.
