Henry Cowdery

Working primarily in large scale charcoal drawings and sculpture, I am inspired by the crippling scale and strength of the water cycle, the eons of erosion and tension that form mountain ranges and the opaque, mysterious weight of human history. I am also interested in the relationship (or contradiction) between nature’s chaos and the human tendency to project narrative onto natural processes.

I live and work in Seattle. WA.
