I Can See the Sea – Art Fish
Beyond the Cornish tin mine a ship sails swirling seas and a seagull flies over overhead spying starfish and swimming fish in this highly decorated art fish by Laurence Henry.
Using a complex relief design full of pattern and texture, Laurence has created a beautiful fish full of elaborate and intricate detail.
The wonderfully realised design has been finished with a copper stud eyes and encrusted copper tail.
Created upon a driftwood find, Laurence uses a variety of techniques and found objects to create his highly desirable works of coastal art.
The double sided design reveals a simpler fish on the reverse with a sea blue head.
His eye catching designs look wonderful in any setting, but for added impact could also be suspended from its lure with thread to gently spin on the breeze displaying both sides at once.
He has worked as a freelance artist to Liberty, Parker Knoll, Habitat and Gallery Five, before eventually taking full time employment with the BBC as a graphic designer illustrating material for Play School and Jackanory.
Since his early retirement in 1999, he has been able to concentrate on his artwork, which has always been an important focus to his creativity.
His work is currently exhibited at various galleries around the country.
