David Henderson

Brooklyn, NY, United States

Born in 1956, David Henderson studied art with William Tucker, George Sugarman, and Vito Acconci. He received his M.F.A. from Columbia University in 1981 and his B.A. from Bard College in 1978. He lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. He has had solo exhibitions at Knoedler Gallery, Smack Mellon, Michael Steinberg Fine Arts, and Kristen Frederickson Contemporary in New York City; and at William Siegal Gallery in Santa Fe. He has been in numerous group shows across the country. His large, modular installation, "A Brief History of Aviation", has been exhibited at six venues from Boston Massachusetts to Auburn Alabama, and has been featured in numerous art and design blogs and magazines around the world. He has been reviewed in the New York Times, the Boston Globe, the New Yorker, and twice in Sculpture Magazine. He has pioneered the use of fiberglass and carbon fiber as structural materials in sculpture, exploiting the extraordinary tensile strength of these materials in ways usually associated with ultralight aircraft and sailboats, in order to achieve truly unique and astonishing results.
