Belynda Henry’s beautiful new exhibition, Waterfalls and Waterholes, has been featured in the popular Australian design blog, the Design Files, as well as the interior lifestyle magazine, Vogue Living.
The exhibition showcases Belynda’s distinctive style that captures natural forms through loose, gestural movements. These latest renderings of the Australian landscape reflect the artist’s experience of living and working in the lush valley of the Central Coast, the New South Wales bush land she calls home, as well as the tropical and verdant Daintree Rainforest.
Belynda has been painting Australian landscapes for over 25 years, drawing on her local environment as a source of inspiration. An acclaimed artist, she first fell in love with painting during high school thanks to a wonderful art teacher. In her interview with Vogue Living, Belynda says that the natural world was always her focus, specifically landscapes, and that she is happiest when immersed in nature. “I feel best hiding out in the trees, and the valley [where we live] is very quiet. We love the pristine, unpolluted environment we are raising our daughters in.”
Waterfalls and Waterholes runs until 15 December 2019 at Australian Galleries, Sydney.
