Silkscreen & Installation Artist
Adreon Henry is an experienced and skilled silkscreen and installation artist whose been working in Austin, TX for almost 20 years. He often works around the themes of time, community and perspective. Henry's use of variety of screen printing techniques on non-traditional mediums has allowed him to created a signature visual style; while his many years as a musician gives him a strong foundation to create magnificent soundscapes and interactive installations.
Beginning in 1951, Art City has been through many iterations. 2019 celebrates the 69th year of the festival. Upon hearing this vast history of the festival, Henry was inspired to create this temporary public installation to pay homage to the connectivity and longevity of the creative community through the Art City Festival.
In the installation, there are sixty-nine fully realized stones, one for each year of the festival, and one additional stone with the same pattern faintly applied (as if it is being developed), symbolizing the future year. The pattern on each stone is composed of 365 lines/rays, crossing and connecting, symbolizing one year of the festival.
