Artist Belynda Henry, as a multiple Wynne and Archibald prize finalist, is one Australia’s leading notable and celebrated landscape painters, however her work has also been acquired by private collections in the United States, Japan, Switzerland, Taiwan, New Zealand, Ireland, Hong Kong, Athens and London. Her fascination with the Australian landscape is the main inspiration for her work. Living and working within the landscape itself at the end of a long lush valley in New South Wales where she is exposed to its constantly ever changing sights, sounds, light and textures – witnessing and absorbed by nature’s compositions and colours. This proximity affords her the luxury of constantly being exposed to – and meditating on the medium and incorporating those impressions in her imaginative works. Although she inhabits the land, at the same time – is inhabited by this unique and seductive landscape – and that is evidenced in her work which is a vibrant, modern and a unique visceral experience.
