SAN FRANCISCO—Mike Henderson is presenting a series of new paintings at Haines Gallery. Defined by mesmerizing striations of color that often appear in patched sections, many of his canvases resemble Kente cloth.
According to the gallery, Henderson was inspired by his experiences and special moments, he drew on “conversations he has had, sounds he has heard and places he has visited—manifesting these experiences through texture, form and color.
“Through his highly gestural and tactile paintings, Henderson reveals a palpable connection to post-war abstraction, coupled with a defining instinct for improvisation.” — Haines Gallery
Bay Area-based Henderson has been exhibiting at the gallery for more than 20 years. His current show, “Traces of Places” is on view from May 1 to July 3, 2014.
