About Liam Hennessy

Born 1981 in Suffolk, England. Currently based at Cuckoo farm studios, Colchester.

I am instinctively drawn to abstraction in art because of the freedom it implies, and my work is influenced in particular by the formal experimentation of 20th century abstract painting and sculpture. The use of repeated motifs and a multi layered, modular approach to image making create a sense of narrative within the work. I tend to work intuitively without a clear idea of where each piece will end, preferring to let the process itself direct the finished form of the work.
