Congratulations to Belynda Henry whose exhibition The Space Between hosted online by Olsen Gruin Gallery, New York, sold out in its first 10 days.

Half of the exhibition has been acquired by Christian Louboutin, French fashion designer, known for his signature high-end stiletto footwear incorporating shiny, red-lacquered soles.

Viewable online until 31 October 2020

We look forward to Belynda Henry’s upcoming solo exhibition from 28 November – 20 December 2020 at Australian Galleries in Sydney.

Belynda Henry’s everyday fascination with the Australian landscape is the main inspiration for her work. Living at the end of a long lush valley on the Central Coast, New South Wales, which she drives through daily, she is constantly and automatically gathering views, flashes of moments and imagery. Photographing the landscape and making small sketches are also part of her daily practice. Forever seeking out new images, compositions  and colours to use in new works.

“I don’t attempt to paint a clear representation of the area but take from everywhere. Then, back in my bush land studio, I reassemble the memories much like a jigsaw into a simplified and emotional interpretation of the beauty that surrounds me”.

Belynda has been painting landscapes for over 20 years. Exhibiting continuously with over 30 solo shows to her name. She has been selected as a finalist for many prestigious awards such as the Wynne prize for landscape painting at the Art Gallery of New South Wales in 2016, 2015 and 2013 as well as the Archibald prize in 2016, and most recently the Paddington Art Prize in 2018 and 2017.
