AN award-winning and internationally exhibited artist has revealed his new artwork at a popular venue.

Henry Driver, launched an exhibition at Cressing Temple Barns on Friday as part of his three-month Artists in Residence programme led by Essex County Council.

Specialising in combining art and technology, Henry has worked across the Eastern region and previously shown artwork at Tate Liverpool, Tate Britain and The Barbican & Whitechapel Gallery.

Henry, will showcase his piece Regenerate, a three-dimensional illuminated sculpture, celebrating Cressing Temple Barns grand history of grain storage.

He said: “I am delighted to unveil this new permanent commission celebrating the unique history of Cressing Temple Barns, and raising awareness for regenerative agriculture.

“I have had a fantastic time in residence, and I cannot wait to share the resulting artwork.”

Most recently, David was nominated as one of the top 15 artists under the age of 35, based in the UK for the Kleinwort Hambros Emerging Artists prize.

Councillor Simon Walsh, said: “The artwork not only enhanced the visitor experience at Cressing Temple, but is also thought provoking, reminding people about the importance of sustainable farming methods.”

The artwork will be on permanent show in the Wheat Barn at Cressing Temple Barns, and is one of the 101 challenges from Explore Essex, aimed at helping residents to get out more this New Year.
