Over the course of eight decades, Adam Henein sought the poetic simplicity of visual form, drawing on a rich visual legacy in the pharaonic art and contemporary aesthetics. His sculptures of bronze, wood, clay and granite and his paintings of abstract geometric shapes, regularly rendered on papyrus, often embodied the notion of eternity.
