MAXINE HENRYSON

ARTIST STATEMENT
I explore cultures from around the world through the lens of color. In chance encounters, the extraordinary is made visible in the ordinary—an idol is transformed into a butterfly and a stretched sari becomes a magical orange veil. Hybrids of the abstract and the real, the painterly and the documentary, these works present a vision that exists as much in my imagination as in the real world.
My photographic works often present a sensual and poetic view of the seemingly everyday. I experiment with the limits and peculiarities of color film to produce luminous photographs saturated with intense color. Editing and sequencing are the mainstays of my process. I sequence images to create non-linear confluences that explore visual memory, religious coexistence, rituals, the female world and nature. Publishing is a significant part of my practice: in my books I experiment with different ways of producing and viewing photographs.
