Gallery 1855 is pleased to announce an exciting exhibition from artist Dave Hennessy. Hennessy is a visionary artist whose artistic influences include Ansel Adams, Richard Diebenkorn (figurative paintings), Morris Graves, Edouard Manet (flower paintings), Odilon Redon, Joseph Mallord, William Turner, Vincent van Gogh, Johannes Vermeer, and James McNeill Whistler. His technique and style create compelling images that will engage and inspire the viewer. A special artist reception will be held April 9th, 2017 from 1-4:00pm.
“Twenty-three of the twenty-four images in this exhibit were captured within easy walking distance of my home. The twenty-fourth image was created entirely digitally. Hopefully, in capturing and working with the images I have revealed some of the extraordinary and the miraculous hiding-in-plain-sight in the everyday-ordinary. Something grand is always nearby—one doesn’t have to go somewhere special.
Integral to the experience of each work is its title, square format, and medium. In contrast to a rectangle, squares better lend themselves to a more immediate and intimate experience of the image. The rectangular format encourages the eye to move from end to end. Consequently, the image feels more “out there.” The square format encourages the eye to move around. The image feels more “close-up.”
The images are printed on either aluminum that is infused with dyes or on wood board that is marked with ink. Wood amplifies the image’s organic earthiness. Aluminum amplifies the image’s luminosity even under normal room lighting.
The square-framed 21.25-inch archival prints are each priced at $625.00 plus sales tax.
