Kelsey Henderson paints strangers she meets over the internet or through loose friend-of-friend connections. Although technically precise with a vivid attention to the details that physically define an individual (a freckle here, a slight curve in the eye-lid there) her work resists an exploration of personality, perfering instead to linger on the surface. Lavished in translucent light and draped across crumpled sheets, her subjects become a celebration of the newly discovered, the outsider’s gaze, the place just before the beginning.
