Bill Henderson RWS

Bill Henderson’s work has its origins in the automatism of the Surrealist era, and although there have been changes and developments over recent years, his references have remained primarily with artists such as Andre Masson, Joan Miro, Paul Klee, Arshile Gorky and more recently with Agnes Martin, Carl Andre and Cy Twombly. He works with acrylic paint, on canvas and paper supports. His most recent paintings have been made by layering and overlapping hundreds of individually painted lines, of varying length and configuration, each line produced as a separate entity, enmeshing with the rest and suggesting hundreds more, hopefully experienced optically as a physical sensation, with implications of constant movement and imminent change.
