Lewis-John Henderson

My work revolves around the concept and practice of turning oil (paint) into plastic. A reflection on my 21 years of exposure to aspects of consumer vision. A passive aggressive style, subtlety sexual in nature, a cry for help in a padded room. Lets flips things on their heads, lets turn plastic into plaster. Lets make it thick over thin, impasto over silky smooth. Paint so thick you could peel it off like a sticker. Accept our guilty pleasures. Pop ups with a Photoshop aesthetic, iced like a cake, sickly sweet. It’s too good to be true, we’ll all end up fat and old. Who cares? Its either big or small, there is no half measure. Playful humour is a weapon, a fly zapper for the open mind. Be your own assistant – embrace the bipolar architect. Give up the myth of the artiest, they are all smoking clowns.

Henderson exhibited at Griffin Gallery in the Griffin Art Prize 2015 shortlist exhibition, in November -December 2015.
