Simon Hennessey

By London based hyper realist painter Simon Hennessey, amazing painting! He says:
“My paintings are perceived as a reflection of reality but in truth the artwork transcends into its own abstraction of reality. Through using the camera as a visual source for painting I am able to create false illusions that are judged as our own reality.
The reduplication and the transformation of media such as a photographic language into a painted language, produces a meticulous calculation within the process of change. Through the mimetic representation of a photographic source I am able to produce paintings that are capable of deceiving the human eye.”
