Artist Jade Henderson presents his sculptural and site-specific installation work which manipulates everyday – and often over-looked – items in surprising ways. Creating a compelling juxtaposition of different styles, materials and approaches, Henderson points towards our throwaway consumer culture, our relationship to nature through the duality of decay and growth, and our need to create meaning in our lives through a manipulated reality of the “stuff” found in it.
