John Henderson: From Model to Modal serves as a comprehensive index following the last decade of John Henderson’s career and interest in bridging two seemingly irreconcilable pursuits; gestural expressionism and industrial production.
With works ranging from oil and acrylic paintings, painted-over photographs, to aluminum casts as well as copper electrotypes of thickly impastoed paintings, and video performance -- the artist synthesizes a variety of techniques to create a body of work that invokes minimalism and abstract expressionism while simultaneously acknowledging a distance from their unmediated practices.
