About Jean Henderson

ARTIST STATEMENT

'At the still point, there the dance is' (T.S. Eliot)

On the surface of things, my work is very traditional and realistic as opposed to fanciful or surreal. Yet my creative process is rooted in the meditative approach.

The essence of things is what interests me -- finding Minor White’s “equivalence” while striving for Edward Weston’s innate sense of form. Whether it is an expansive landscape or an extremely close view of, say, a flower that I find before my lens, I seek that moment of stillness as found at the apex of a dancer’s leap.

Indeed, it is T.S. Eliot's “still point” which makes my varied individual works a whole.

As an English Major turned photographer, I learned in the wet darkrooms of the 1970s until, in 2009, I began making images digitally.

You will find my work in the permanent collection of the Akus Gallery at Eastern Connecticut State University as well as in private collections throughout New England.

A 1975 graduate of the University of Southern Maine, I was born and bred in Sanford-Springvale, Maine. Since 1982 I have lived in Connecticut.
