Anna May Henry is an emerging contemporary artist and graduate from the National Art School. Working within the genre of the Still Life from an observation-based studio practice, Anna is interested in the unique aesthetics of native Australian flora; their beauty in their resilient nature. More recently, orchids and other interesting flowers have made their way into her paintings after Anna started working as a florist. Through the creative process she negotiates the fundamentals of painting, exploring traditional and contemporary mark making using a diversity of paint application. Interested in pattern and colour, her works also examine the relationship between the foreground and background, as well as the interplay of light and shadow.
