ArtistBeric Henderson

I am an Australian artist with a background in both science and art, and have been consistently exhibiting since 2002. I relocated to a coastal town surrounded by rainforest and this has influenced the current series of artworks entitled "Symmetry of Nature". The works are highly detailed abstracts and produced by applying thousands of dots of ink onto paper or canvas. The intertwining growth of branches and leaves are interspersed with various motifs to explore the spiritual and physical connections between man and nature throughout time.

Beric Henderson is an Australian artist with a background in science (PhD in biology, 1990, Univ. Sydney). His art has been presented through 14 solo exhibitions and ~70 group exhibitions in Australia and internationally since 2003, and his work explores the interface of art and science and the integral connections between humans and the natural world. The major theme is exploring the nature of change, and in turn the changes in nature.
