Kathleen Henderson is an artist living and working in California. In her recent LA Times review of her show Watch Me Make You Disappear at Track 16 gallery, Leah Ollman writes, “In scene after tragicomic scene, Henderson registers the dismaying state of the union and the planet,” as she, “toggles astutely between representing concealment and revelation, power and vulnerability; sometimes the conditions oppose each other, sometimes they reinforce.”
Her drawings and sculptures have been the subject of numerous solo shows in LA and San Francisco as well as the Drawing Center in New York. She has received a National Endowment for the Arts grant and is in the collections of the Hammer Museum and LACMA. She has been a staff artist at the Creative Growth Art Center in Oakland, which is the country’s oldest and largest progressive art studio for artists with disabilities, for over ten years. She is the founding editor of the Creative Growth magazine as well as the studio special projects coordinator.
