As time evolves, so does sculptor Robert
His never-ending quest for growth has taken form
in the sculptures he creates. Dubbed the "Warbird Sculptor" by an
entire generation of World War II veterans, Robert has chosen to
chronicle the history of aviation in monumental bronze sculptures.
To date, he has fathered "The Study Hall", a most
unique outdoor sculpture garden at the United States Air Force Academy
in Colorado Springs, Colorado. This garden houses extraordinary bronze
warbird memorials - 4 World War II fighters, 3 World War II bombers and 1 World War II
cargo plane. These warbirds tell the modern day history of the Air
Force to those who study at this prestigious school, as well as
millions of visitors each year.
Robert has also placed his monumental sculptures -
bronze, wooden, and chrome at major international airports and museums
around the country. He is now embarking upon a duplication of "The
Study Hall" at various sites around the country. Because Robert has
many aficionados of his warbirds, he has created desktop replicas of
each, which are personalized for the individual buyer.
His art has brought so much attention to this
talented sculptor that Robert has been requested to create portraitures
in bronze, not only of famous aviators, but also political figures and
entertainment personalities. His bronze series of significant race car
drivers, entitled " Race Faces ", has aroused the curiosity of
influential racing magnates.
Henderson, a man with an inquisitive mind,
recently researched the impact of ethnic groups in the country. His new
series, "Pioneer Jews", captures the effect of noteworthy figures such
as Josephine Earp and Levi Strauss.
Although many of Robert's pieces are accurate
representations of life, he seeks to capture the abstract through a
provocative body of work focusing upon womanhood through a series of
bronze vases and fountains. Ultimately this work, meshed with live
theater, will evolve into "The Event Called Womanhood".
Robert Henderson sees no boundaries. His art
provides beauty and challenges thought - as all enduring art must.
