Henry Quick
Online Since:27.04.05

Biography:

The inspiration for a great deal of Henry Quick's current work originates in his fascination with the history of the Second World War, a subject studied since boyhood.
The experiences and recollections of family and friends have fuelled this interest and each autumn he embarks upon a bicycle tour of battlefields in Europe, visiting the places that impact upon his work---the invasion beaches of Normandy; bunkers, blockhouses and U-Boat pens; museums and cemeteries that commemorate the events of sixty years ago. Many of these sites are lonely, overgrown and neglected but are still charged with great emotional potency. Many are strangely beautiful, though not in a way that is picturesque or pleasing to the eye.
Through his mixed media work, often incorporating original relic material found on his journeys, he strives constantly to find a visual equivalent for these inspirations, trying to investigate his own response to the brutality of those WW2 events and trying to evoke the complex atmosphere of tragedy and dormant violence which permeates the battlefield areas even to this day.
Henry Quick has studied painting for many years and after a long career in teaching, is now able to paint full time in his studio in Vernon Mill, Stockport.
