John Hennessy: Impressions of Antoni Gaudí

 

"Recycle Mutant," by John HennessyEXHIBIT VIRTUAL GALLERY

This work is a personal exploration of the work of Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí by John Hennessy. Guadí was the principal practitioner of a architectural period known as Modernisme. Hennessy’s goal is not to catalog this work but to react to it and enjoy it.

Gaudí, who died almost 100 years ago, worked in Catalonia, mostly in Barcelona. Modernisme largely died with him except for a large church which is not yet finished. Many did not mourn Modernisme; others pine for it. Millions visit Barcelona just to see it.

Gaudí’s work is very organic with many obvious references to bones, plants etc. Those who lived in his houses (some still do) must need an infusion of Dramamine to stay upright. The floors are the only things remotely in a plane. Gaudí’s work is bizarre or whimsical or gaudy or eccentric or genius. You pick.
