Cary Henrie was born in 1961 and was educated at Pratt Institute in New York City. His paintings are created by a unique process of combining oils and acrylics layered upon canvas. With each piece, he spends hours layering his canvas with additive and subtractive methods: sanding, varnishing, taping, adding paint, burnishing and removing layers of paint. Henrie's highly textural process enhances the depth and sophistication of each work of art, and the result is a fresco-like patina on a weathered surface. The artist says of his work, "I really try to capture a symbolic or time weathered scene or landscape with an abstract sensibility." Aside from a western looking facade, Cary Henrie draws much inspiration from Italian frescos and his time spent in New York museums.
Cary Henrie was voted one of the top 10 artists to watch in 2006 in SouthWest Art Magazine, and he was featured in a cover story in the national publication "Sedona Monthly."
Cary is also a jury-invited artist to the Florence, Italy Biennale 2007.
Cary Henrie's collectors include Whoopi Goldberg and Mrs. Fields of Mrs Fields Cookies, and his paintings have been used in scenes in Major Motion Pictures.
