Hen Coleman | 2019 Dorich House Museum Studio Residency

Black Wood

May – July 2019

Artist Hen Coleman was selected as Dorich House Museum’s second annual Studio Resident. The result of Coleman’s residency, entitled Black Wood, was a new body of drawings, using charcoal which the artist made from the wide variety of woods available from the Museum gardens, including apple, hornbeam, pear, cherry and mulberry trees. The work also included the creation of a series of podcasts, recorded whilst walking with invited collaborators throughout the park and gardens. The resulting landscapes – both visual and aural – were presented within Dora Gordine’s studio, forming a re-interpretation of the building’s natural surroundings.

Hen Coleman is a graduate of the University of the Creative Arts (2003) with a Masters in Printmaking from the Royal College of Art, London (2006). Her studio practice is based in Oxfordshire, and for the spring and summer of 2019 was relocated to Dorich House Museum.

The Dorich House Museum Studio Residency is generously supported by a private donor.
