John Henry is known worldwide for his large-scale public works of art, which grace numerous museums, corporate, public, and private collections. His works are prominently exhibited in many American cities, as well as throughout Europe and Asia. He has shown his work extensively since the early 1960s and exhibits a definitive trademark style that is recognized internationally. His works range in scale from small tabletop pieces to some of the largest contemporary metal sculpture in the world. While identified by some in the 1970s as part of the Minimalist Movement, the geometric forms that have defined John's work for more than fifty years have their aesthetic and historical base in Constructivism. John has a supreme commitment to the materiality of his work, and an unwavering insistence on maintaining the integrity of the process and the materials in developing his visual vocabulary.
John Henry is the Curator of recent international exhibition "Sculptures En Charlevoix" at Domaine Forget in Saint Irenee, Quebec City and is the Founder and Curator of "Sculpture Fields," a 33-acre international sculpture park in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
