Simon Hennessey: Portraits and the human figure.

Simon Hennessey is a hyerrealist that specializes in portraiture nd the human figure. His close ups of people’s faces can truly be appreciated when you start staring at the little details. Notice the hair, the wrinkles and the image in the eyes (fig.3) 
Simon Hennessey’s work will be demonstrated in my dissertation, his works completely reiterates my belief behind my dissertation to be that the hyperrealist painting and drawing style is an absolute triumph of awe and skill over a photograph of the same subject matter.
