The Wynne Prize is awarded annually for 'the best landscape painting of Australian scenery in oils or watercolours or for the best example of figure sculpture by Australian artists’. Congratulations to Belynda Henry who is a finalist in the 2016 Wynne Art Prize.
Henry has a fascination with the Australian landscape which is the main inspiration for her work. Living at the end of a secluded valley on the NSW Central Coast, Henry is always subconsciously gathering the natural shapes, flashes of colour and composition of the mountains and trees that surround her.
