CJ Hendry – Bronzed Trophy Series
CJ Hendry has dipped iconic items – including a headless Barbie, Beats headphones and a Hermes Birkin bag – plus assorted other pleasing shapes, such as a Coca Cola bottle and a balloon, in liquid bronze. Then she’s mounted the now-metallic items on concrete plinths, elevating the treasured objects to a trophy-like state. Then she’s photographed them. And only after that she’s started the painstaking work of actually putting pen to paper. She has drawn each image meticulously by hand in black ink. The reflective, metallic surfaces of the items allow CJ Hendry’s incredible unique talent of capturing light and shadow with only a black pen.
