This work is a cast of a painting, effectively a sculpture. To start, the artist makes an exaggeratedly impasto-ed painting on canvas which he then uses to make a mold. The original painting is destroyed in the process. From the casting process results a white plaster copy of the painting, which the artist then stains with colored inks, transforming the sculpture back into a painting.
"Here, as in many of Henderson’s works, his process follows a looped rather than linear development: works that begin as paintings are transformed into sculpture only to be made paintings once again. Henderson subjects his materials to a series of maneuvers and translations, resulting in a poetic and disorienting approach of abstract painting." Jenny Harris
