Don Henderson, Freedom series

“Polished lacquer does not only reflect our response to form, it defines form”. It was through this quote that my attention was turned towards lacquering and japanning. With such an interest on the possibilities of paint and painting materialsI was curious to see if there was some aspect of traditional craft that could be used within a contemporary painting practice.
