Tracy Heneberger’s emblematic sculptures are a product of the life that surrounds water. He has a penchant for organisms both in and out of water and acts on found material with considerable empathy. His sculptures, which are an amalgamation of interconnected units such as sardines, river stones, mushrooms and squid, to name a few, are able to retain their singularity through their graceful centralization of form and color. This poetic approach is further mined by Heneberger’s frequent choice to permanently seal his subjects’ past lives in bronze casts or in shellac and resin. The results both encase and levitate the organic matter with which he builds.
