Henrietta Corbett . Artist, Sculptor, Printmaker. In touch with the land.

October 15, 2011

Henrietta Corbett studied Sculpture and Print at Wolverhampton Polytechnic

where she was taught by the Artist Anish Kapoor.

Being a textile designer, I’m drawn to her textures, colour and sense of line.

She says ” The Rural landscapes of Leicestershire and South West Ireland are the inspiration for my

recent imagery. Time spent at the Cill Rialaig Artists Retreat in Co. Kerry,  has had an enormous

impact on my work, not only visualy but creatively. The limited resourses in this isolated location

has proved an invaluble experience “.


” Animal tracks, black peat fields and the errosion of ‘weather beaten’ land, all have a certain beauty,

that taken out of context can lend their patterns to abstract interpretation of landscape shapes “.


Her crows and simplicity of landscape blend together effortlessly and take the viewer on their own flight.

Henrietta is also a skilled Sculptor and works her rough, rusted, metallic forms into familiar objects

such as birds and people, which also feel weathered and beaten like the land.
