‘Funny Papers’ runs until March 31 and an opening reception is slated for Wednesday from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
The 24-year-old visual artist from Brookfield is a self-taught musician and avid skateboarder. He identifies most strongly with the term artist.
“Art is the only thing that has ever held my interest, in terms of something that could be a potential profession, although that has never been the reason for doing it,” said Henderson in a news release.
His work has been largely influenced by his everyday reality. Subject matter varies greatly, from “the dramatic to the mundane.” His primary intent “addresses the notion that every aspect of life, should be acknowledged, no matter how seemingly insignificant, important, ugly, or beautiful.”
Henderson also draws inspiration from his interest in the ideological apparatus and how it functions and influences our daily lives.
“Broadly speaking, my work is sometimes awkward, or uncomfortable, with the intent to cause people to question their set-in-stone ideologies, and realize that they are in fact learned.”
