Holly Hendry joins Stephen Friedman Gallery

British artist Holly Hendry creates large site-responsive sculptures and installations that are concerned with that which lies beneath the surface, from hidden underground spaces to the interior workings of the body.

Holly Hendry was born in 1990 in London, UK, where she continues to live and work. She gained her BA Fine Art at The Slade School of Fine Art (2013) and her MA Sculpture at the Royal College of Art (2016).

Hendry’s sculptures and installations combine allusions to the skin as the visible ‘container’ of the body with cartoon-like illustrations of anatomy, food and detritus. Casting is central to her process, using an eclectic array of materials including steel, jesmonite, silicone, ash, charcoal, lipstick, soap, foam, marble, aluminium and grit. Hendry’s projects often stem from or directly reference scientific ideas. Through collaborating with researchers and conducting her own experimentation, she has investigated subjects such as material re-use and the skin’s function as both a barrier and a material that facilitates connection.
