"I’ve always painted. Some of my earliest memories as a child were painting murals on my bedroom wall. I painted representational work until I discovered it was far more interesting for me to invent something from nothing. I've spent years of experimenting and creating in the studio to develop my process. This usually begins with a faint idea, and then I allow the evolution to be a conversation with myself that includes thoughts about the composition, color, and texture. Texture really inspires me as I desire to include something tactile in my work. Each time I show up to create I am driven to see something new, dancing between control and letting go. I create art that is layered and nuanced, with the aim of expressing passion and beauty.”
Statement Chris Henry’s paintings tell a story; they are mysterious, challenging and as diverse as the collectors who own them. He can be trusted to always offer art that is unique, textural and intriguing. Bringing a well-seasoned life experience to the easel, he knows that paint is a form of language and he uses this language to speak of beauty, peace and transcendence. And, understanding that the work will also have its own voice, he is able to surrender to that voice. There is a sensitivity and reverence to honoring this creative process and the results are compelling, color-drenched compositions with delicious surface texture and lasting allure.
Born and raised in New Jersey. Henry graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, PA in l981. He has exhibited in many solo and group shows in California, and his paintings can be found in private and public collections throughout the US and internationally. A recent highlight of his career was being selected by jury to show in the De Young Museum Open. He resides in Sonoma County with his wife and two cats.
