Simon Henwod's paintings are fresh and powerful studies revealing the pain, beauty, and vulnerability of youth. Originally available as a limited artist's edition, White Kitten is now available as an affordable trade edition, and presents works on paper by this acclaimed English artist from the last three years. These richly textured gouache portraits set against stark white backdrops accentuate the shark-eyed gaze of youth. Henwood's fascination with the teenage journey as a void to be colored and shaped by experience is further illustrated through a series of mutated and abstracted silhouette-styled nudes. This book also presents an up-to-date illustrated biography of the artist, and an introduction by Makoto Saito, one of Japan's most respected critics.Henwood, Simon is the author of 'Simon Henwood', published 2000 under ISBN 9781902053042 and ISBN 1902053044.
