GFEST team requested Sadie to respond to the queries below, to find out more about the artist and the work.

Sadie Hennessy

How do you see your own art or artwork?

My work sets out to subvert or disrupt expectations – and to comment wryly on the way the world is.

How would you describe your own practice?

My practice comes from a fevered brain and an ice-cold heart.

Are there any external factors that help you creatively?

Divorce really helped!

How do you look at reinventing yourself or reflect progression in your work?

I don’t, I just keep on (working).

What are the most important themes and elements that feed into your creativity?

Iconoclasm, absurdity, disturbance, intervention, sense of humour, fearlessness, playfulness.

Can you describe the creative process behind the work and how it works for you?

It’s a constant interior monologue rabbiting away whilst I attempt to control the domestic chaos of my exterior life.

How would you like yourself or your work to be known?

Constantly surprising.
Any single wish?
No single wish, they tend to come in multiples, like my work.
Thanks Sadie for that rapid and enjoyable exchange and best wishes from the GFEST team.
