Peter Hennessey

For all the ‘realism’ of his ‘sculptures’, Peter Hennessy sees his sculptural work as ‘abstraction.’ His is an odd mission to reverse the tendency of the contemporary world to digitize images. He wants to grab back the digital into the ‘real’ world, doing a reverse Alice in Wonderland trick by dragging those things we can only encounter via the media – the digital rabbit hole – back into the lounge room as real, hulking objects.
