The Delaware Contemporary launches the next installment of our successful and popular Draper Experiment cycle that began in January 2019, but this time with a new name and location! Hennessy Experiment will live in the Constance S. & Robert J. Hennessy Project Space and intends to carry on the original intent of this space designed to promote experimental ideas and materials. Hennessy Experiment will embody The Delaware Contemporary’s mission of innovative opportunities for contemporary artists with the goal of breaking from traditional curatorial and exhibition practices. They seek artists, artist groups, and artist collectives who will use this unique opportunity as a test lab, a Petri dish, to exercise ideas and push current practices in a space to experiment with craft, materials, and mediums or something completely new.

They are looking for proposals that discusses contemporary issues, addresses/critiques society, pushes a current conversation, or exploits the use of exhibition space. A successful proposal will incorporate these features.

Domestic textiles are imbued with the spirit of my imagined foremothers - emblazoned with positive affirmations – as if the spirit of the maker comes to life and offers solace and support. Carole is the caretaker of these thrifted and found objects and the messenger from which their stories flow.

My work is primarily in oils and focuses on urban street scenes and still life settings made up of vintage housewares and toys.  I am interested in all things old as I believe they have the most interesting stories to tell.  Buildings and objects from the past both bring back memories for those who have previously interacted with them, and discovery to those seeing them for the first time.  I work in a contemporary realist style, looking to bring to attention the beautiful design elements that already exist in the subjects that I paint.
