Driftwood Fish No: 36
Full of coastal style, the surface of this driftwood fish has been beautifully decorated with a simple heart motif and found objects gathered from the beach by artist Laurence Henry.
Laurence uses a variety of techniques to create complex relief designs of pattern & texture in his highly desirable works of coastal art.
The double sided design reveals a simpler fish on the reverse with a blue eye and a wonderfully encrusted copper verdigris tail.
His eye catching designs look wonderful in any setting and for added impact could also be suspended from thread to gently spin on the air to display both sides at once.
He has worked as a freelance artist to Liberty, Parker Knoll, Habitat and Gallery Five, before eventually taking full time employment with the BBC as a graphic designer illustrating material for Play School and Jackanory.
Since his early retirement in 1999, he has been able to concentrate on his artwork, which has always been an important focus to his creativity.
His work is currently exhibited at various galleries around the country.
A unique and individual piece of coastal art.
