Opening Reception 15 October 1992 8pm
Mercer Union is pleased to present the work of Toronto-based artist Karen Henderson in her first solo exhibition in Toronto.
Henderson’s large-scale wall works have incorporated materials such as lead and treacle in installations which are rooted in visuality. Her exhibitions are concerned with a process which references: chance, repetition, relationship to scale, scientific method, obsessive play as well as a critique of originality and mastery.
For her exhibition at Mercer Union, Henderson will create a new installation incorporating over 2,500 small “bricks” supporting abstract photographic images.
Karen Henderson lives and works in Toronto. She received a BFA from the Camberwell School of Art, London, England and a MFA from the University of Victoria, British Columbia. She has exhibited in both England and Canada including a solo exhibition at X-Changes Gallery, Victoria, British Columbia.
