MOUNTAIN SKY BY BELYNDA HENRY

Mountain Sky is the latest collection of works by three-time Wynne Prize finalist, Belynda Henry. 

Belynda is based in the Dooralong Valley, NSW, where she is surrounded by 40 acres of unspoilt countryside and national park. It is this rich visual backdrop that is the primary source of inspiration for her work.

From towering gum trees to the rolling hills beyond her property, Belynda captures her environment with joy and sincerity. For this latest body of work, Belynda has worked outdoors, immersing herself in the landscape. The resulting works explore her familiar subject matter with a new-found sense of intimacy. 

Working with acrylic paint and pastel, Belynda paints intuitively. Her canvases are layered with deceptive detail – sparkling water shimmers in the foreground, while mountain peaks rendered in soft pastel hues recede into the distance.

Influenced by pioneering Australian landscape artists including Clarice Beckett, Max Meldrum and Polly Hurry, Belynda’s contemporary works offer a new interpretation of the Australian landscape.

‘My paintings are mix of the valley I live in, the places I have been. and the places I imagine’ - Belynda Henry.
