INTRODUCING: Monica Henry

 

It’s all go at Vernissage! We had an incredible time at the Affordable Art Fair (thank you to everyone who came to visit us - it was amazing to meet so many of you!) and now are getting back down to business, with a wonderful group of new artists we can’t wait for you to fall in love with, and a whole stack of new works to gush over. Stay tuned as each week we introduce you to someone new and showcase their fabulous work.

INTRODUCING: MONICA HENRY

Monica is a Geelong based artist who culminates her skills in design and her family history of working in textiles to create these sublime tactile designs. Inspired by textures, fabrics, botanical nature and the movement of the threads, Monica brings these elements into her designs through rhythm and flow. You can’t help but want to run your hands over her gorgeous work and feel your way around her art. Monica uses a huge selection of different wools together with a range of stitches and techniques - at times taught and neat, and other times long and shaggy. Her works draw you in to spend time with them, notice the detail, enjoy the softness and lose yourself in the designs.

Monica has an Advanced Diploma of Visual Arts and has studied a number of creative subjects such as fabric design, photography, lifedrawing, screen-printing and fine arts.

My aim is to create art that is visually beautiful, capturing the viewers eye and pulling them into the artwork, with no real beginning or end to the piece

Can’t quite work out the scale? This piece is taller than Monica herself, however it can be hung horizontally as well. For a better understanding of her fabulous pieces, come in and see them, or contact us to arrange an in-home viewing.
