|John Henderson "Kadima" fused glass|
Washington Glass School Resident Artist John Henderson recently had a glass artwork panel acquired by Community of Hope, a non-profit organization located in Washington D.C. For 33 years, Community of Hope has provided hope and stability to low-income and homeless adults and children in DC. This acquisition was facilitated by Fitzgerald Fine Arts, an art consulting firm headed by Lillian Fitzgerald.
John Henderson began his artistic studies at the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, at Harvard University. John’s artistic journey has taken him through printmaking, water colors, stained glass, metal sculpture, and finally kilnformed glass.
“In creating this visual transparency; abstracting images, symbols and text, my work invokes a spiritual awareness and connection to the past. My aesthetic philosophy is an exploration and extension of my cultural identity. I am reclaiming and reconciling the past, with the present, in order to move forward.”
The title of the triptych piece is “Kadima”. Kadima means "Forward" in Hebrew. The medium is fused glass and each panel measures 8"x10".
