SLATE - Liverpool 17 - 24 July at The Bridewell Gallery - Liverpool
Slate was my first show and I feel was a great success. Happening just after the easing of the lockdown in England the show had art from myself and Max Gottlieb. The combination of my monochromatic work and Max's work with lots of colour combined well to produce a balanced and interesting show.
Below is a write up of the show, my statement and photos of the opening night.

Henry’s work for slate is a candid look at his relationship with his past life experiences. Torn and cut canvas demonstrates a desire to break from the norm whilst the structure in his pieces shows a longing to conform. This juxtaposition forms the base of his work past and present and something he continues to confront through art. Colours are substituted by textures, layering, paint effects and allowed space. This abstinence grants capacity for people to breath with and consider his work. Epitomizing this late lockdown pace of life, Henry’s paintings are calm moments, a much-needed breather letting the world careen back to life. Let it. This can be a new slate.
