Henry Turner

My practise has always followed my personal whim, and my practice then shaped my whim – in the beginning was the act and then everything else happened.

Just now I use rich colours of pale orange and pinks with the blonde of grass and the olive of scrub and, with strange stringed music and the perfume of aciphylla and frankincense, I create the fairy tale of my decision, when I looked to the moon and it was made of rotten wood or marble. I make images of caves and fields of flowers, of fruit and insects, of strange places where the sound of better things is heard, whatever terror for the future brands me now.

Henry created The Golden Islands penguin.
