Bill Henson - Ivy
Bill Henson's 'Untitled' triptych work features in the lobby of Fridcorp's Ivy apartments, St Kilda.
Bill Henson is a visionary explorer of twilight zones, between nature and civilization, youth and adulthood, male and female. He frequently employs a flattened perspective through the use of telephoto lenses. His works are often in the form of staged tableaux in which faces of the subjects are often blurred or partly shadowed and do not directly face the viewer. Duality is a recurring theme, often in combination with adolescent subjects.
Henson has exhibited nationally and internationally at galleries such as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Venice Biennale, the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, Australia, the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia and the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris.
Bill Henson is represented in Australia by Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery and his 'Untitled' triptych work features in the lobby of Fridcorp’s Ivy apartments in St Kilda.
