This Titania Henderson’s exhibition will present a range of bronze and bone china porcelain sculptural installations.

Embracing form and void, translucence and opacity, line and light, Titania Henderson’s sculptural practice is characterised by the pursuit of pure perception. Inspired by her experience of the changing natural world and her delight in the orders and rhythms of language, calligraphy and architecture, she continually challenges us to ‘see’ beyond, to appreciate the interrelationship of all things. Thus espousing a level of abstraction that emphasises the entire visual experience, her work bears strong artistic affinities with Mondrian and the de Stilj movement, and echoes of German sculptor, Gertrude Goldschmidt (known as ‘Gego’) who emigrated to Venezuela in 1939.

Structures loosely resembling cones, circles, crescents, ellipses, folds and scrolls typically juxtapose an outer layer of smooth or corrugated bronze with a super-fine interior form of black French limoges porcelain or stained bone china. Lines invites contemplation of the ideas, memories and mysteries which unite humanity and nature. At once delicate and powerful, it is an elegant embodiment of Mondrian’s aspiration for an art that would ‘realise the internal life as well as the external life.’
