Simon Hennessey – Abstraction of reality

“My paintigns may be viewed as a photographic representation of reality, but in truth my artwork transends into it’s own abstraction of reality. I do not adhere to a true mimetic depiction of a photograph, I use the camera only as a source to assist me with gathering information.

My process of adding or removing detail, altering depth, adding textures, form and colour values and their relationship within the painting, allows me to create an illusion of a reality not seen in any photographic source. My Paintings therefore appear clearer and more distinct than a photograph…”
