Henry Manning is a visual artist who interprets the world around him in abstract terms. He creates attention demanding graphic images; abstract landscapes and seascapes, as well as mindscapes with little or no reference to the external world.

For many years Henry lived on the beautiful Oregon Coast, where the ocean and natural surroundings have been the inspiration for much of his work. Recently Henry relocated to the Sierra foothills in Northern California, where the change in visual environment has brought a new vigor to his art.

Henry's recognizable style is characterized by its simplicity of line, an iconic reference to real world objects, a subtle reworking of viewpoint and perspective, and a calculated focus on the relationship between color fields within the work. Many viewers attribute a calming, meditative quality to Henry's work.
