Peter Hennessy.

February 11, 2010

I was walking past the Gertrude Street gallery today and saw this great show. Peter Hennessy, if it is the same one, is the artist who made all of those space craft out of ply, canvas and steel. Here he has made a plaster model in which he has stuffed explosives, put in a tank of water and then detonated the bomb; the end result being explosion art! Get me a shotgun so I can shoot rose bushes. The video was amazing, to see the flex in the perspex when the explosion went off was magnificent. If you get a chance, treat yourself and go see the show.

More of Peter’s work.
