Helen Iranyi was born in 1937. As a teenager, she attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She received a B.S. in Computer Science at the N.Y. Institute of Technology/SUNY (NY) in 1990.
Commenting on her "exploitation of sheer, luminous color," The New York Times reported, "Helen Iranyi... shows a distinct gift... She is at her strongest in pictures that adhere to brilliant colors with their brilliance unveiled by elaborate overlays of pigment." The main element in Iranyi's work is color. By overlapping, turning and twisting layers of paint, she aspires to express light and form. Her colors speak eloquently for themselves and are, as Arts Magazine has commented, "original. . . and quite lovely."
Highlights of Helen Iranyi's career include her participation in numerous solo and group exhibitions including Pittsburgh Corporations Collect at the Heinz Galleries at the Carnegie Institute. She has been represented by Kingpitcher Gallery (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania), MJS International (Fort Worth, Texas), Gallery Reese Paley (New Jersey), West Broadway Gallery, Barney Weinger Gallery, and the Multi Media Arts Gallery, (New York City.). Her works are in numerous private and corporate collections. Iranyi is also a published author and you can read more about her publications on Amazon. Her artist files are included in the Smithsonian Institution Libraries Collection, Yale University Library collection, the Museum of Modern Art DADABASE, and in the Artist Files at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum Archives in New York. Her personal letters are included in Columbia University Library collection.
