John Henry is known worldwide for his large-scale public works of art, which grace numerous museum, corporate, public and private collections. In the Dallas area, his sculptures may be seen in front of the Hall Arts Building in the Dallas Arts District.
The geometric forms that have defined John’s work for more than forty years have their aesthetic and historical base in Constructivism.

He was a founding member of ConStruct, the artist-owned gallery that promoted and organized large-scale sculpture exhibitions throughout the United States.
