Lot 527 - Henry Ward - Untitled (3)
Henry Ward is a painter living and working in London. He works primarily as a painter, but also makes drawings and small sculptures. He is interested in exploring the language of paint by investigating the threshold between abstraction and representation. He maintains three specific sites of practice; his kitchen table, where he makes small objects, his shed, where he paints on paper, and the studio. These three spaces create an ongoing dialogue between different ways of working and different paces. He was shortlisted for the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize in 2018, 2019 and 2022, and longlisted for the Contemporary British Painting Prize 2021. He is included in the inaugural “The Football Art Prize” in 2022. His work has been included in numerous exhibitions. The first substantial publication about his work, “Shed Paintings – Henry Ward”, was published in February 2021 by Hato Press and features 101 works on paper and a new essay by Ben Street.
