During lockdown with not much to look at, apart from the bits and bobs in my house, I started to have a little play with making these random bits and bobs in to funky little people,” said Helene Wotruba. These “funky little people” as she puts it, are each unique colorful creatures not quite alien and yet not quite human. Trophies for bodies, and lightbulbs for chests, these characters are utterly out of this world. And yet, for all their absurdities, there is something so recognizable about each one, in the emotions that they convey and the stories that tell.
