Appearing at Semi Permanent Sydney 2019
CJ Hendry (b. 1988) is a New York-based artist originally from Brisbane, Australia who transforms her fascination with contemporary material culture into large scale, photorealistic drawings of consumer goods ranging from the ordinary to the aspirational. A self-professed “lover of products,” Hendry is heir to the Pop art tradition that brought depictions of everyday objects into the gallery and the museum. But whereas Pop artists were often known for sly, sarcastic critiques of mid-century consumerist culture, Hendry gleefully embraces the capitalist ethos of our time.
