SAVE THE DATE – SMILE Adam Hennessey

Adam Hennessey
THURSDAY 12th JAN 2017 6:30 PM – 9 PM

The paintings on show at New Art Projects are the culmination of works made over the past year especially for the space and explore in depth the themes that Hennessey has developed during his time at the Turps Banana Art School, London.
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.
