FIGHT OR FLIGHT
Loved, feared, celebrated and even hated, owls have a long running history in many cultures throughout the world.
They have been seen as markers of gods, symbols of knowledge, wisdom, fertility, as well as death, famine and destruction. There are few creatures that have
been perceived with such contradictory meanings.
Darren Henderson’s anthropomorphic birds are distinctly individual, each expressing the infinite shades and subtle conveyance of different emotions. Fight or
Flight is a celebration of the unexpected and unplanned. Drawing inspiration from both the subtle simplicities and complexities of life.
A founding member of The Autopsy Gallery in Melbourne, Darren has exhibited in a number of group exhibitions and has been featured in several publications
including Wooden Toy, Juxtapoz (USA) and Sunday Life (The Herald-Sun and The Sunday Age).
