David Henderson: Man O’ War

David Henderson
Man o’ War: Bellerophon
Carbon Fiber, Epoxy
34″x19″x20″, 2007

David Henderson’s laminated wood and carbon fiber, and fiberglass sculptures are graceful, sometimes organic references to natural beauty, but with hidden agendas of the symbols of war, atomic bombs, and the mathematically designed devices of human conflict. The pieces are highly engineered but beautifully flawed. The sculptures yearn for something that is more than skin deep, and like the works of Martin Puryear or Richard Deacon, there is still a handcrafted subtly to their elegance and imperfect complexity.
