about the artist
Al Henderson’s work ranges from the handheld to the monumental. His work focuses on the representation of a subject, and often the nature of representation itself. Its strange familiarity originates from his own, variously contemporary or counter-contemporary, sense of things.
He employs both traditional and current methods of production. The approach is to tailor the work flow, chosen materials, and designs to suit the notion that originally inspired the project in the first place.
Henderson has taught sculpture at the University of Alberta, acted as a coach and advisor for public art, and modeled figures commercially. He has installed a number of public works over the years.
Beginning work on another 'realistic' sculpture. Here a local historical reenactor, as WWII commando, as herself, 'Hoc Est Peggy'.
