Mark Hennessey

Mark Hennessey is an American artist whose work is evolving toward a conceptual view of the process of transforming socio-political, artistic and cultural issues and an aesthetic content while deconstructing the 21st century American dream-culture.  Based on a modernist architecture that reproduces familiar visual themes, arranging them with combined or juxtaposed elements the pieces inform the imagined resonance in the ready-made and suggest a formally unified content, beauty and interpretation. In order to disarm the canon of classical post-humanist art an improvisational variety of earth-friendly materials invites the viewer to project Mark's methodology on the subject matter in patterns, textures and colors. The frame of the process determines the context and forms the body of work in multiple media specific themes, influences and meanings.
