HENRY COE » 2018 ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE

Artist’s Bio and Statement

I received a BA in English from Roanoke College and an MFA in painting from Maryland Institute College of Art. I began painting seriously on the Eastern Shore while working as curator in Easton at The Academy of Arts and teaching at Chesapeake College. I was drawn to the flat land and the big sky: a Dutch landscape quality of light reflected off of the water back into the clouds.

I spent seven months painting in China through a Maryland “sister state” relation with Anhui Province and accompanied A Maryland State Arts Council exhibit which included my work to Kanagawa Prefecture in Japan. I have done three artist’s residencies in France and made many other painting visits there. My work has been featured in American Artist Magazine and in the book 100 Plein Air Painters of the Mid-Atlantic. In the past year I have participated in several plein air events, including Plein Air Easton, 2016.

Over the years I have shown regularly in galleries in Chicago, Houston, and Baltimore. I work in oils on a large and small scale and prefer to work en plein air as much as possible. Small works take a few hours and large ones can take a few weeks. I return to paint at the same time everyday. I like to paint the lengthening shadows and lowering light that occur toward the end of day or the softer light of early morning. Ideally, I want my work to have a sense of light traveling through air in space. Having a palpable sense of air in a painting is very important to me. The light and shadow define the mundane objects of a landscape I see as disappearing: small family farms or the rural industrial look that at one time was representative of many small towns.I have worked primarily in the Mid-Atlantic region, coastal Maine, Texas and western France. https://henrycoepaintings.com/
