Artist Statement

I have a background in art and science (PhD in biology). I started drawing at age four like most people, and never stopped. I started exhibiting my art in 2003, and in 2016 relocated my studio from Sydney to Port Macquarie, a coastal town on the mid-north coast of NSW, Australia. It is an incredibly inspiring location and we live within minutes of the ocean and a rain forest. My art practice revolves primarily around drawing and painting but I also experiment with mixed media, light-box art and small sculpture.

My earlier artworks (2001-2015) focused on dreams and the subconscious.

In recent years (2016-) I have immersed myself in exploring mankind's connections with the natural world (flora and fauna, earth and ocean) and the cosmos.

To quote a recent essay by Anna Perdibon, "Be it on a conscious or unconscious
level, a strong sense of spirituality pours out from Henderson's art. It is a secular,
scientific spirituality that informs his art, sewing together biology, medicine, ecology,  spirituality and aesthetic."
