A Brooks Art in association with WW Gallery are delighted to present More Strange Hungers a solo show of recent and new works by Sadie Hennessy.

 

More Strange Hungers is the ejaculate outpouring of a rich seam of work that first formed whilst Hennessy was preparing for her solo show at WW Gallery. That show, Strange Hungers, took its title from the eponymous 1963 British Pulp Fiction book that delves into the mysterious workings of desire and the insistent lusts and yearnings of the sexual appetite, and Hennessy added her own unique voice to this '…the (unanswered) mating call, or at least the rallying cry, of the aging woman as she grows old disgracefully.'

In More Strange Hungers at A Brooks Art, Hennessy continues to deliver her humorous, wry, feminist manifesto and a celebration of female empowerment and sexuality. Her hybrid collages and assemblages create unsettlingly surreal combinations and are delivered with a wicked sense of humour. More Strange Hungers is Sensational Super Charged and Salacious!
