Description:

In Paula Henderson’s Social Regard, one branch of these works is concerned with gender specific social constructs shaped by the ubiquitous commercial and cultural representations of women internalized in the development of our sense of worth.
Dissimilarly, Henderson's regard is echoed in the second series in this exhibition, Groundwork(s), wherein her interest in abstraction is in its postmodern possibilities. In contrast to the self-contained formalism of modernist abstraction, she focuses on prosaic, schematic patterns of visual appeal, that operate simultaneously as social signifiers.
