Adreon Henry has always been curious about how things are constructed and has always had a drive to create. From a very early age he developed a very specific style through repeatedly drawing imaginary friends; these friends still exist today (i.e."The Pendletons").
As a youth, his dedication to art intensified and he sold candy and various oddities to his peers in order to purchase his first screen-printing machine.
As a young adult, Adreon formed a band "Single Frame" and in 2000 the band decided to move to Austin, TX to pursue musical endeavors; this is when Adreon decided to commit to his artistic practice. In the intervening years, Adreon explored his creativity and found success in both music and art. Today he continues his creative endeavors, often working with the themes of time, community, and perspective. Adreon's use of a variety of screen printing and painting techniques on non-traditional mediums, and his tenancy to cut and weave these materials, has allowed him to create a signature visual style, while his many years as a musician gives him a strong foundation to create magnificent sound-scapes and interactive installations.
Intersecting Stories in Superposition
Most of my recent works investigate the idea (or act) of two stories/paths/perspectives that intersect (weave). These are really base (or primary) ~ like geometric pictographs or something, where some aspects line up and others don't.
In quantum physics there's a theory called superposition which is likened to a coin being flipped in the air; when it's in the air it is both heads and tails, with each having equal probabilities, before landing on one side or the other ~ similar to Schrodinger's cat theory. Each in their own way, the artworks in this exhibition show two sides at once, ultimately being the product of the intersection.
