Born in 1974, Henry Falzon comes from decades of fine-art photography, artistic practice and life-long learning. Henry was never comfortable following traditional and ‘proper’ art paths. Instead Henry thrives on individualism, and off-the-beaten path practices.
Henry uses landscapes, or rather the depiction of spaces, objects and sometimes persons, as vehicles to convey thoughts, feelings, and stories. Sometimes the stories depicted in his landscapes are forceful and clear, at other times pensive and mellow. Often the viewer discovers aspects in his canvases that fascinate and engage.
Its difficult to box Henry’s work into one category. His work is very much driven by exploration and quests that make him hop and skip train tracks, do U-turns, back tracks and course changes – all these are parts of the game. The ebb and flow of life is there. Noting is fixed and there is an urgency to explore all nooks and crannies of life – through landscapes. Landscapes transport the viewer to other places and with the right perception, the viewer may experience anything from a simple pleasurable outlook, to triggers of deeper emotions.
”Making my art, its like riding the bicycle. I make decisions on the fly. Like the bicycle ride, you cannot look too much into the distance, but neither can you afford to look too close to the ground below…Its a mix of instincts, vague destinations and plenty of effort…
“You’re welcome on board of my journey…”
