Lot 26 - Henry Glover - Simply done
I am an oil painter and ceramicist. I focus on the interplay between the physical sensations of my materials and the raw emotions I experience in my daily life and personal relationships. I am concerned with shared feelings of introspection that have arisen in recent years and proven to catalyse the impacts of rumination and loneliness on the soul. I draw upon the early Mediaeval period, Antiquity, Folklore and Myths in providing subject matter steeped in history, and drama, transforming it into our contemporary every day. I find a freedom of expression by utilising iconography and maintaining my own motifs with a rich background in often Romantic and aggrandised contexts.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
I have submitted three works that relate to emotions encapsulated in simple symbols, be it a heart or a forest. Each has been painted in a way that embraces the drama and hangs on straddling the surreal and every day. I enjoy focusing on this place visually in between genres and playing up the voice of the works titles simultaneously. Snapshots of raw feelings are elevated with extreme colours and fantastical elements hopefully capturing the expressions in an honest way.
You must not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell or exploit any works. In doing so, you endanger our relationships with artists, and directly jeopardise the charitable work we do.
PLEASE DO NOT BID ON ARTWORK IN OUR ART ON A POSTCARD AUCTIONS IF YOU INTEND ON SELLING THE ARTWORK AFTER YOU HAVE PURCHASED IT. THIS AUCTION HAS BEEN ORGANISED FOR CHARITY AND ALL ARTWORKS HAVE BEEN GENEROUSLY DONATED BY THE ARTISTS TO RAISE MONEY FOR THE HEPATITIS C TRUST. WHEN THE WORK PRODUCED FOR THE CHARITY IS SOLD ON THE SECONDARY MARKET IT DAMAGES OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE ARTIST AND PREVENTS US FROM FUNDRAISING.
