Mia Henry
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Mia Henry’s paintings are not only gestural and abstract, but also musical. The colors and brushstrokes flow and blend with an unexpected rhythm that translates emotion into a visual experience. Mia is inspired by the memories of her childhood in Newport, Rhode Island, where she would spend time by the ocean. She works almost exclusively with oil on canvas. She emphasizes the tactility and materiality of her process through layered compositions and exploration of new tools. Mia’s compositions give her paintings a lyrical musicality that rings with each abstract crescendos of color.

Comments About This Piece

This piece is part of a series of work exploring gesture. This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang. 

Oil painting

Oil paint uses natural oils, such as linseed, poppy and walnut oil to bind the pigments. Oils are slow to dry, which allows the artist to rework the painting to achieve the desired effect. Also, they blend easily, which helps to achieve certain colors. With the rise of naturalism in 15th century Early Netherlandish painting, oil paints became preferred to quick drying tempera paint. Artists wanted a medium that would allow them to achieve detailed and precise effects in their paintings. Consider all of the detail in the masterpieces of Jan van Eyck and Hieronymus Bosch!

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
