Serial art prankster (yes, she did open a fake baby tattoo parlour called ‘My First Tattoo’) and provocateur Sadie Hennessy hits Hastings with a bang with her new show Apocalypse Now & Then.
The thing that stands out about Hennessy is that her creations are every bit as clever as they are beautiful and hilarious. It’s rare to find an artist with the ability to make you laugh and question the finer details of life.
The ethos of See Spray Gallery is to offer artists somewhere they can show without any form of censorship, without having to produce work specifically to sell…so with this in mind, it seems like a perfect marriage of space and artist. Prepare to be slightly offended and to laugh….a lot.
Sadie Hennessy graduated from Central St. Martins College in 2010 with an MA in Fine Art. She studied B.A (Hons) in Theatre at Dartington College of Arts, graduating in 1987. It was in 2010 that she was selected as the inaugural artist at the Lautrec Gallery at Chelsea Arts Club, London.
“My work is concerned with absurdity and poignancy. I operate within a cultural framework of ‘Englishness’ and explore ideas of nostalgia and faux-nostalgia. My practice is currently about creating objects that reflect the crises and existential bogeymen that pervade our 21st century consciences, both on a domestic scale and at a global level too. My work intends to unsettle its audience and to elicit a jolt of recognition in them. I am not afraid of using humour to create a reaction but it definitely comes from the darkest end of the comic spectrum.“
See Spray Gallery is located at 153-154 Queens Road, Hastings, TN34 1RN.
