Alexys Henry paints contemporary abstract oil paintings with organic references and colorful textures. Her time in Seattle, Phoenix, and New York inspired changing landscape references in her work. “I found myself drawn to every day details such as cracks in walls and layers of peeling paint and poster paper. Nature flourishes alongside urban decay.”
Although Alexys Henry was born in Arizona, she grew up in both Phoenix and New York where she became influenced by the dramatic shifts in her cultural and physical environments. As a child, the expanses of deep snow covered fields broken by rich patches of overgrown trees and half frozen streams captivated her and continue to influence her imagery.
While in Phoenix, Henry was very active on her college campus studying Journalism, Painting, and Early Childhood Education. Henry moved to Berkeley, California in 2002. The energy and history of the city are reflected in many of her abstract paintings. "There I found myself drawn to every day details such as cracks in walls and layers of peeling paint and poster paper. Nature flourishes alongside urban decay."
From there, Henry traveled to Seattle where she lived briefly and enjoyed driving along the coastline drinking in views of the endless ocean, which show up in her seascapes. Now living in Phoenix with her daughter, Henry aspires to be a vehicle for freedom and creativity in her work, often allowing artistic media to lead her in composition and technique.
