urban

The geometric abstraction of Henrion‘s earlier works was deeply rooted in the urban geometry of her surroundings as a life-long New Yorker. In 2010, with the introduction of her Soft City series, those origins became explicit in mixed media works based on digitally manipulated photographic images of her Soho neighborhood. In her Windows series, the artist’s eye expands to include other cities and towns  in which she has traveled, focusing on the symbolism of the window. Much as Edward Hopper had done in the last century, Henrion synthesizes and transforms the "facts" of the material world to reflect her own experience of a particular place. In the collage works, she once again turns to abstraction, drawing  upon her own photographic images to capture the energy and vitality of the ever-changing urban landscape.
