Damian Henry

Born 1969 Glasgow, Scotland
1995-1999 Glasgow School of Art

Graphic works range from small monochrome etchings to large vibrant colourful monotypes. Etchings employ gentle, romantic, detailed imagery - flowers, girls, musicians. In contrast Henry's lino cuts are strong, bold and dramatic.

"Damian Henry's beautiful art is the best way to add vibrancy to a damp day. He seems able to turn his hand to any figure or animal - tiger, horse, dog, cat, giraffe - all being conjured up by his deft skill. He makes it look easy, his people and creatures simple and eloquent, yet these fluent lines are the result of the time-consuming and difficult process of etching acid, aquatint or hacking into wood or lino and then printing. There's no evidence of the toil involved, they seem effortlessly perfect." Leyla Sanai, Scottish Art Critic
