Henrietta Manning

About

A contemporary realist, Henrietta Manning works predominately from life in acrylic on masonite. Whether a studio based portrait or still life, or a subject out on site, hours are spent carefully choosing the best time of day. The play of light, the casting of shadows compositionally and emotively determine the time of day that the picture will be painted. As the artist progresses the window of opportunity to work locks in ever smaller to a particular light. The majority of the work is therefore season and time specific. As time is integral to the artists work practice, it is also a recurring theme explored within the work.

Exhibiting since 1985, Henrietta Manning is an established award winning artist. Represented by Colville Gallery in Hobart and based in Tasmania in the Huon Valley, the artist’s studio is also open by appointment.
