BIOGRAPHY

 

Bill Henson’s photographs, first exhibited at Robert Miller in 2004, demonstrate the artist’s interest in the duality of nature and artifice, in adolescence, and in the distinction between male and female. These beautiful and mysterious images are characterized by chiaroscuro, translucent skin tones, and jewel-tone colors that add an ethereal quality to ambiguous settings. Bill Henson’s works are in many international collections including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Bibliotheque Nationale de Paris, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and in every major public collection in Australia.
