John Henry is best known for his monumental abstract sculptures of intersecting welded beams and monoliths. After designing, engineering, and welding all of his sculptures in studio, he places linear and planar pieces of colored steel in precariously balanced configurations. Henry emphasizes solids and voids, shadow, and a commitment to the exploration of materials. Typically identified with 1970s Minimalism, his formal roots lie in Russian Constructivism’s merging of industrial processes and geometric abstraction. Henry’s work ranges from small pieces to some of the largest metal sculptures in the world.
