About The Event

“Slowly/Surely” is the debut solo gallery exhibition by artist Robin Henry. This autobiographical exhibition explores themes of storytelling, change, and healing brought to life through hand-painted enamel signs and sculpture.  Each piece acts as a bookmark, dog-earing important stories and transformative moments in the artist’s long journey towards healing and gentleness. The central wall installation features thirty-two cut-out pieces of sign work, displayed floor to ceiling in salon fashion. Each piece is designed to be viewed up close as an individual memory, and afar as part of a larger interconnected story. Robin Henry is known for their screenprinting and mural work . This exhibition denotes a new avenue in their career, inviting the viewers to engage with vulnerable memories that have shaped the artist’s path.

The exhibition will run from Feb. 27th until Mar. 9th. The opening reception will be taking place on Feb. 29th, from 6PM until 9PM.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Robin Henry is a dedicated artist from London, Ontario with a focus on illustration, printmaking, and public art installations. With a passion for making art accessible, Robin's work has resonated with a wide audience, from international brands to small businesses and most importantly, a great many London punks.

Robin's artistic journey is deeply influenced by screen printing and their work is characterized by clean black lines, distilling concepts into images of illustrated iconography. Through their art, Robin often explores memories, experiences and emotions through the visual themes of botanicals, animal life, houses and cabins, doorways and portals to other places, and mountains with peaks and valleys.

Robin also does live screen printing demonstrations and workshops, sharing their passion with aspiring artists and inviting others to explore their own creativity. Robin’s work reflects a humble dedication to the power of creativity as a means of reflection, processing, meditation, and connection.
