Curtis Reid Henderson is a multimedia sculptor, printmaker, and potter based in St. Johns, Portland Oregon. His work, rooted in the use of found, salvaged, and recycled materials, reflects upon and adds commentary to the lack of transparency in consumer manufacturing; without readily available replacement parts & schematics, goods and machinery around us are abandoned rather than reused or repaired. This self forged reliance on consumerism and consumption affects our disposition towards the industrial materials Curtis uses in his work. Through extensive exploration, the hidden value of these discarded objects can be visualized and reinterpreted. Curtis’ sculptures, functional objects, and prints cultivate a narrative around our place in post-industrial society and capture how institutional infrastructure and capitalism have shaped our culture.
