Col Henry has pioneered an original, groundbreaking technique, resulting in a revolutionary and ultra-modern group of art works, which marry the resilience of steel to the fragility of glass. Col Henry has made a significant contribution to the development of Contemporary Australian Art. He is represented by several Public Sculptures and countless Private Collections in Australia and overseas. Col Henry has been recognized as an innovator, his unique work has developed over 40 years of dedication to his art. His “GOSSAMER SERIES” involves physically sketching in space, creating shadow sculptures, using his ‘Colcast and Pure Glass’ and Steel and Stainless Steel, to create complex three-dimensional forms, a matrix that is formal, as well as conceptual, and always elegant. There is a rhythm that is meditative and engaging, but the works are not purely visual, they are also metaphors for imagination and creativity. Subtle variations in the patterns suggest organic references and there is a definite order, no matter how chaotic it may seem. The illusion and allusion is made stronger through the narrative of ambiguity and the viewer should negotiate their own meaning of the intriguing elements.  His practice is characterized by conceptual agility, inventiveness, knowledge of the language of sculpture, and his poetic, romantic and elegant associations. He is concerned with the energy of form in relation to the space in which it interacts, remaining true to the materials, while reflecting on the natural environment. Openness to natural forms and the celebration of the possibilities inherent in the material, suffuse his work with organic and sensuous references. His vocabulary of form and motif, allude to the rhythms in nature. The works recall primal totems and monumental columns, devotional objects, sea creatures and seedpods, the movements of water and wind, archaic instruments, features of the landscape, and the human form. Bringing together all the elements, and fusing references to past, present and future, enables morphology of space in which form, process, material and sculpture converge. Col Henry has studied for many years in pursuit of his artistic endeavor, including related Degrees, Diplomas and countless Certificates and short courses. He has been collected in Australia and Overseas in many Private Collections. Over the past 30 years he has been commissioned many times to place Sculpture and Sculptural Features in Public areas. The most recent is three large, groups of sculptures in a public park on the Gold Coast of Queensland. He has conducted Sculpture Classes for the last 20 years in his studio in Wyong Creek, in the Yarramalong Valley. He has also been regularly involved in helping community groups and many of the local schools to achieve excellence in art and art awareness.
