Henry Fraser. An Artist making the invisible, visible.

December 14, 2011

It is hardly surprising that Henry Fraser’s work has grown rapidly in popularity since he graduated

from Edinburgh College of Art almost nine years ago. His paintings achieve what great work should

accomplish. They draw you in, they lay the essence of their subjects bare and they connect with the

viewer. There is a ‘soulfulness’ that shines out. It’s also their slightly dark, quiet watchfulness that

leads you to look again and wonder if it’s sadness or menace that is really going on.

All the feelings about life that Henry sees on people’s faces round his Edinburgh studio – innocence,

guilt, great happiness or sadness, enlightenment or frustration – can be seen. He says ” In my work

I endeavour to paint the soul. To make the invisible, visible. I hope to engage the viewer in reflecting on

their own sense of being and mortality.”

Whatever you may think to Henrys’ work, it’s already becoming popular and collectors are saying good

things about it too. Someone to be watched.
