Photography by Andrew Wilson


Contemporary Painting of England's northwest

Henry Finney

Henry has exhibited work throughout the UK and had work published in print and online. Most of the subjects He selects are from reality, but are open to what imagination and paint can achieve in creating a sense of place.

Natural elements like trees or clouds are opportunities to push the limits of colour, form and light, with people and buildings being nestled amongst them. The intention is to skew the reality slightly, just like visiting a familiar place in a dream. Based in Merseyside, UK, he will often draw inspiration from the people and places that are rooted in England’s North West.
