About Henry Glover

B. 1997 Oxford, UK

Based in London.

I am a painter and sculptor focusing on the physical elements of relationships. Mainly working in oil on canvas, I combine light washes and drawing mediums to bring about the image. The idea of the ‘embrace’ is a recurring motif in my work. The embrace is explored in many forms. Boxers grappling (clinching), hands squeezing a pillow, and ceramic human forms locked together are all examples of how I deal with touch and intimacy. Darting between figurative and the abstract elements, I want to create an awkward unrest where the ambiguity of the subject and the style unsettles the viewer.

Ultimately, I am focusing on the pure emotions and sensations of both the materials with which I engage with and my own personal relationships.
