Statement

In the works of Marilyn Henrion, the medium IS the message. Having chosen textiles as her preferred medium, the artist celebrates that irregular and intimate quality of things made of the human hand. Applying contemporary aesthetic sensibilities to traditional textile techniques, and combining them with modern technologies, Henrion transforms the medium into a vehicle for sophisticated visual expressions with strong graphic impact. About her work, art critic Ed McCormack writes: “This major American artist is one of precious few who have taken the textile medium far beyond its brief popularity during the feminist era and continued to broaden its possibilities and elevate it to the highest level of contemporary mainstream aesthetics.”

A graduate of Cooper Union and a lifelong New Yorker, Marilyn Henrion is included in the Smithsonian Institution's Archives of American Art. Her award-winning works included in solo and group exhibitions in museums and galleries throughout the U.S. and abroad. The works, in major corporate, museum, and private collections, including the Museum of Arts & Design in New York, the U.S. Embassy in Pnom Penh, Kaiser Permanente, Lucent Technologies, Carnegie Abbey Country Club, Portsmouth, RI, and others, have 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.
