b. 1937 Delft, The Netherlands, lives & works in New York, USA

 

During his education at the Vrije Academie in The Hague, Henderikse became friends with Jan Schoonhoven who introduced him to Group ZERO. They then joined the Dutch Nul Group in 1961. 

 

1958 was the year of his first solo and group exhibitions at the Delft University gallery, exhibiting his early monochrome paintings produced with opaque layers of paint. He later turned to utilising found objects and rubbish- also inspired by American Pop Art, and showcased his walls of beer crates at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam in 1962. 

 

His found-art period culminated in him signing the Oberkasseler bridge in Düsseldorf as an artwork. From 1963-67 Henderikse lived in Curaçao before emigrating to New York.

 

Stedelijk Museum Schiedam holds a retrospective on the artist from March to June 2018.
