ABOUT MARILYN HENRION
Born in 1932 in New York City, Marilyn Henrion is a graduate of Cooper Union who is represented in the Smithsonian Institution’s Archives of American Art. Her textile-based works are included in five major museums and numerous corporate, government and private collections internationally.
As a life-long New Yorker, the artist’s aesthetic vision has always been deeply rooted in the urban geometry of her surroundings, from the earlier geometric abstractions to the more recent mixed media works. She is particularly interested in the co-existence of past and present, especially in architecture and other man-made structures. The presence of the human hand upon the landscape expresses our eternal yearning for immortality, evidence that says, “I was once here”. The meticulous handwork that animates the surfaces and characterizes her work echoes that idea. Much as Edward Hopper did in the 20th century, she synthesizes and transforms the “facts” of the material world to reflect her experience of a particular place.
Her work has also been featured in numerous publications, including “Women Designers In The U.S.- 1900-2000”, published in 2001 by Yale University Press. Among the grants she has received, was one awarded in 1996 by The Artslink Partnership, devoted to fostering excellence in the arts between the U.S. and countries of the former Soviet Union. In 2005, she was awarded a Fellowship by the New York Foundation for the Arts. She is represented in the Smithsonian Institution's Archives of American Art.
