Scott Henderson Bio

As the Director of the smART Space Galleries at Science Museum Oklahoma, Scott Henderson’s goal is to educate the community about the symbiotic relationship between the arts and sciences. His formal art training was acquired at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago and at the University of Central Oklahoma. He has been shown in many group and solo exhibitions around Oklahoma City and abroad. His works are included in important private, public and corporate collections. He mainly works in collage and mixed media with a focus on fantastic themes in correlation with self-identity. With a raw collage style and a painterly approach his art presents new ways of looking at the world in relation to the graphic realm we are invariably surrounded by.

My painting/collages show the dichotomy between the comfortable familiarities of our environment and the veiled nature of reality.  In my artwork I express the ideas of individuation and archetypes and how they influence the psyche, dreams and the Self through the use of symbols, diagrams, multi layers, and textural imagery.

 

Bending Time 

Ink Resistant Print on Wood Panel

30" x 40" x 1.5"

Value $1,200 / Starting Bid Price $900

The inspiration for the artwork came from Holly Voden’s costume and the poem that was based on all the stories in general. I wanted this to have a more art deco look, a classical feel that reflects on the thought of how wonderful it would be if you could turn back the clock for all of these abused children.  To be able to stop these things from ever happening. The purple figure represents time itself, she is a mystery, tenacious but graceful. The red sash is the flowing nature of a time line, the constant waves throughout life. And the hearts are the love that is present now and will go on forever because of the help of the PCHAS.

Three Children, one garbage bag, inspired the artwork.

This piece shows a garbage bag (background) with a flower that sits on top of the confusion and neglect that was these children’s lives before PCHAS. The flower is a powerful metaphor for these children’s salvation, that something beautiful was able to bloom and blossom from the neglect that was their previous upbringing. The children were finally able to blossom in the newfound care of their foster parents.

His First Love Party

Ink Resistant Print on Wood Panel

30" x 30" x 1.5" 

Value $800

The inspiration came from the story Birthday Cake

The story is about a social worker who was moved by the sheer excitement of small 6 year old boy who had just tried his very first birthday cake (something we all take for granted). She was moved by this very small gesture, because it was a stepping-stone to his journey of hope and healing. This piece is a very narrative example of this. A caring home, two hearts representing the power and healing that love has, a small sad boy juxtaposed with a larger happy child bursting with joy and smiles, and the color of white to show the purity and the innocence of a small child.

The Graduates

I almost always use color to serve as the communicator in my paintings, and in Sarah’s story it is undeniable. The color purple is Sarah , it is her wisdom, pride, ambition and most of all perseverance. All of these qualities are expressed in the color purple.  The large amounts of green that are seen throughout embody Sarahs foster parents , not only is their surname “Green “ but the color is also associated with  safety harmony and growth  Connecting all of these pieces are shapes of yellow=positivity, loyalty and white = safety and goodness.

One More Time

Oil on Canvas

36" x 48"

Value $1,200 / Starting Bid Price $1,000

As the title suggests “One More Time”, this is true of the constant back and forth or Allen's developmental beginnings in life. I transposed this feeling of loss and confusion in the many tangled lines and dots that that cover the canvas. The paths that never really go anywhere. . The predominate use of pink in the background represents the future he found. Pink represents compassion, nurturing and love. It relates to the unconditional love, and understanding that Allen found with his his forever family “ Joe and Emily. - Katie Henderson

I usually always paint large, but for this piece I thought that a small painting inside a plexi box would help express the tiny and fragile nature of a new born, one that was born addicted to drugs and suffering from withdrawals.  In this case the use of the color yellow that lies underneath is the anxiety and agitation of little baby Isaac, but on top is the colored fabric that is representational of the blankets and the loving touch that he was given by his adoptive parents Andy and Donna. - Katie Henderson

this heartbreaking incident.  They are a solid tangled in a web uncertainty being lifted up by the people who are working for the  safety and well-being of all children. - Jennifer Morgan

Kelsey Heimerman Bio

Using a brush and wood panel or canvas as her means of exploration, Heimerman spent the last twelve years mastering oil painting. Creating experiments in form, color and compositon that eventually evolved into her unique style. She developed a secret graffiti identity and in 2014 she moved to a new city and opened a studio space, where she currently creates and resides as an artist full time. She developed a taste for European cities and tropical islands, and as an examiner of modern life she became obsessed with the details of everything. She notices bizarreness in a world full of status symbols, #veganism, #robotics, #zoloft, #plasticsurgery, #fortunecookies, #vaccines, #celebritypresidency, #economicinequality #cryotherapy, #refugees and #shamanism. The brevity and absurdity in the spectrum of these topics often influence the paintings. Using distortion, engorged layers of firm, deliberate and bleeding paint become objectified as they describe flesh, spaces, animals, textures and experiences in a codex of modern iconography. He bold colors reflect taking a sledgehammer to the primary colors and exude the pop culture of our contemporary world. She is a perfectionist with a curious and investigative mind that is constantly evolving to develop her expressive and analytical technique.  Read More...
