SMILE Editions Closing Drinks Party

To celebrate the end of this exhibition on Saturday 4th March, Adam Hennessy will hold a closing party. A whole wall will be hung with 24 small sized paintings on Botanical paper, unframed each measuring 35 x 24.5 cm. Each work will be sold at the event for £150 including VAT on a first come first served basis.
The paintings are small versions of the large canvases in the show including Alphabet finger, Fat lamb, Manhole cover, Hawk, Smile, Squawk and Man perspective.
Hennessey is a very British painter, his small and joyful canvasses and works on paper examine and extend a certain kind of Britishness both in terms of how they are painted and in terms of the wry humor they display. Influenced by the colour palette of Prunella Clough, Ivon Hitchens and Paul Nash, these paintings share a fascination with mark making, and a creamy brush stroke that gives a beautiful and rich surface to the works.
