Hen Coleman is a British artist, born in Venezuela and now based in London and Oxfordshire. She is a masters graduate of the Royal College of Art and a current printmaking tutor at The Royal Academy Schools. Her work has been shown in various London galleries and is included in private and public collections in the UK and the USA.

Her drawings depict altered territories informed by landscape in which the protagonist’s role is carried by recurring motifs of vessels as containers and layered natural forms in transformed states. ‘The contrast between a terrain of ‘chaotic and abundant nature’ and the more measured environment of our ideas and behaviour presents itself as a dialectic which it feels interesting to deal with. It’s a third territory, not necessarily geographical or historical but as an unfolding space or stage for playing out memories, responses and reactions.’
