About Princess Justice Janêe Henderson

Represented Artist

Justice Henderson (she/her) is an arts administrator, art historian, and artist interested in observational painting, curatorial work, and community engagement. Henderson earned her BFA in Studio Art with an emphasis in painting and a BA in Journalism with a focus in public relations at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. With experience in museum interpretations and data collection, she continues her artistic practice independently as she pursues a dual MA degree in Arts Administration and Policy and Modern and Contemporary Art History, Theory and Criticism at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, focusing on creating equitable spaces centered around providing resources and making opportunities accessible to artists and local communities.

I am in love with the act of looking. By redefining and expanding on what the artist's self-portrait should appear. My practice plays with the traditional mode of oil painting while emphasizing the relationship between the spaces that make up our daily lives and the human body as key factors to portraying identity. I intend for my work to slow us down to observe and understand the connection we have to the objects and spaces that constitute who we are. My exploration is about capturing fleeting moments in which temperature, color, and light change and recording the geometry and light shapes that form throughout the day. While utilizing a limited palette to explore the nuances of color, my goal is to play with perception by recreating the moments that mystify me in the world and portraying these moments through the act of painting. Engaged with the abstraction of perceptual experience, my body of work focuses on the figure and plays with colors and shapes to facilitate personal introspection.
