About

Statement

Early experiences influenced my lifelong interest in nature – color, forms, and textures – and nature continues to influence my art. The paintings are created using a variety of materials and embody tones and layers, resulting in tactile, energy infused surfaces. They are worked and re-worked, adding layers until many times they are not what I could have predicted from the start. Risks and uncertainty are welcome, and I am open to all possibilities, changes and directions. For me the process of painting is physical, color relationships are dynamic, and surface texture creates excitement. Canvases transform intuitively to incorporate nature and the environment, evident throughout these expressionistic paintings.  

Biography

A Georgia native, Henry received his degree in Visual Design and Painting from Auburn University. After college, he worked as a graphic designer and creative director in New York. He spent his free hours in the city’s museums and galleries studying the work or master Abstract Expressionist and Impressionist painters. He left New York to travel throughout Europe and North Africa; during this period his painting technique and direction developed. In 1984 he founded and was President of Callahan & Company, a marketing communications firm with emphasis on brand development, in Baltimore, MD. In 2000 he relocated to South Florida as Director of Client services for a prominent digital marketing firm located in Fort Lauderdale, traveling extensively throughout the Caribbean. In 2012, Callahan returned to Georgia to devote full time to painting.
