As a seemingly endless stream of family, friends and supporters packed their way into Burbank's Creative Arts Center Gallery for the opening night reception of Nicolás Henderson's "Everywhere at Once" exhibit this past Friday evening, the artist couldn't help but become a bit overwhelmed.
"From the time I was very young, I have been to this gallery many times," Henderson said. "But never did the thought that I would someday have an exhibit here ever cross my mind. It's very exciting."
Henderson, a fine artist who works in the medium of 35mm film and digital photography, studied at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena before moving to New York City, where he continued his education at Parsons School of Design.
Explaining that his work stems from his obsession with textures, colors and what others may consider to be incidental elements of an image, many of Henderson's offerings have been created by "layering" his images and re-photographing background details through various mediums including glass as well as screens from computers and televisions.
