“Employing photography, film, digitally generated imagery, games design and sculpture, Henry's work is totally contemporary in it's exploration of the speed at which the digital and virtual worlds are developing and the serious issues and questions that this raises. He creates shifting and shimmering imagery that seduces the eye, the technical virtuosity always in service to his purpose and enwrapping the viewer.”
Barbara Dougan (Engage Journal editor, 2016)
I have shown both internationally as well as across the UK. I have exhibited at Tate Liverpool as well as multiple times at Tate Britain.

My videos have been broadcast in nearly forty countries. Notable galleries who have shown my work include Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge, Vivid Projects, Birmingham, Firstsite, Colchester, Sainsbury Centre of Visual Arts, Norwich as well as Enclave Projects, London. Recent screenings include Whitechapel Gallery, London and Torroloft, Copenhagen.
My interactive video installation Odyssey was exhibited at Tate Liverpool for the Blueprint Festival during the summer of 2014, this was followed by being shortlisted for The Space Open Call 2014, a worldwide call aiming to commission game changing digital works. Most recently, it has been shortlisted for the Aesthetica Art Prize and will be on show for the Aesthetica Art Prize Exhibition 2016.
