Objects of Desire – Bill Henson

Bill Henson, 'Untitled', archival inkjet pigment print, 2010

Leg of Lamb was gobsmacked by the Bill Henson at Roslyn Oxley9‘s stand at VIP Art Fair.  Made last year, the photograph recalls Japanese woodblock prints, and even the seascapes of Hiroshi Sugimoto, all the while evoking an exquisite moodiness typical of Henson.  There is a marvelous tension between the simplicity of the composition and the textural brilliance of the print, that conveys in each grain subtle shifts of colour and light.  Beautiful.
