Theresa Henson is inspired by growth and the proliferations of forms that are found in diverse ecosystems — in nature, communities, and the self. In her explorations, she engages contrasts of the worn with the renewed that create an ever-changing whole. Intrinsic materials becoming. From Byzantine iconography representing transcendence and realms of the divine to Japanese aesthetics of the worn and broken, her practice draws from varied inspirations to explore the rough ways to emerging new life.
