New Ashgate Gallery
Henrietta's prints, ceramics and paintings, rich in textures and simple forms, are full of totemic creatures. Horses and birds stand in abstracted landscapes. While her imagery has a timeless quality, recalling animals carved into chalk hills or on a cave wall, her bold compositions and sophisticated mark-making demonstrate the confidence of an artist at the height of her powers.
Henrietta's sculptures and printmaking often show her images pared down, creating stylised lines and minimal form. Her paintings, however, are strong colourful depictions with an inventive pallet reminiscent of the Fauves.
Having studied fine art at Wolverhampton Polytechnic under Anish Kapoor and Nicola Hicks, Henrietta has become one of Leicestershire's most widely recognised artists, her work is shown in leading galleries throughout the UK.
