Jack Henry is a Sculptor and 2010 MFA Graduate of the University of Maryland. His sculptural monuments are comprised of found objects, cast resin and other mixed media.
Henry takes an archaeological approach towards his work by procuring objects from abandoned/ desolate areas like highway medians, empty homes, and fenced-off vacant lots. He then combines these items into cast resin blocks or forms, eventually allowing the found objects to reveal themselves through morphing layers of color and texture – much like a geological rock formation.
Unlike Mark Dion, who is known for his archaeological installations that display natural environments, Henry’s forms are composed of man made materials that reference a post industrial America.
