HENRY FRASER’s work has grown rapidly in popularity since he graduated from Edinburgh College of Art ten years ago. His paintings achieve what great work should accomplish. They draw you in, they lay the essence of their subjects bare and they connect with the viewer.
'HENRY FRASER’s naïve treatment of the human figure is both compassionate and revelatory in its abstraction. With none of the trappings of conventional portraiture, Fraser strips humanity back in pictorial, psychological and emotive terms, conveying profound sensitivity in his paint handling and choice of composition. With striking economy, Fraser is capable of incredible delicacy and insight.'
Georgina Coburn in a review of Fraser's 2012 show with David Cook
