ARTIST INFO

About 

Henrietta Dubrey is a painter who works in both the abstract and figurative genres, exploring the dialogue this creates in her oil paintings and works on paper. The works are informed and inspired from cultural magazines, films and social media as well as contrasting visits to London galleries and restaurants. Originally from Sussex, she grew up at the foot of the South Downs later moving to London to study Fine Art at Wimbledon School of Art followed by post graduate studies at the Royal Academy Schools. Then, after living and starting a family in France for 5 years, Henrietta settled in west Cornwall in 2000 to continue to paint inspired by her love of the middle generation St Ives painters such as Roger Hilton and Terry Frost. Henrietta’s paintings are internationally collected. One of the highlights of her career was to have her paintings featured in the twentieth anniversary series of Absolutely Fabulous.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork 

‘Peeling Onions’  

Fascinated by faces and expressions and the emotions they can evoke, this stylised profile depicts a girl crying, but not necessarily out of sadness. Maybe she is lost in thought as she chops her onions for a barbecue, the tears that are forthcoming cover up a multitude of scenarios that could present themselves.  

‘Mannequin’  

This coy looking young woman tries on her outfits, the abstract nature of which echoes her interior.  

‘Cool Dip’  

Always fantasising about the perfect swimming pool and a relaxing holiday these girls are oblivious to anything but their own pleasure.
