B. Canada, 1979
Delphine Hennelly’s work addresses the human condition and prescribed gender roles through her use of pattern, repetition, and uncanny colour palettes. Her work is particularly inspired by tapestries, art history, and early Modernism which she references through motifs, compositional structures and gestures. Hennelly works in series, exploring the same motif as an act of repetition, influenced by the writing of Giles Deleuze and the notion of continuous time and the conflation of the past and the future with the present.
Delphine Hennelly (b. 1979) received her BFA from Cooper Union in 2002 and her MFA from Mason Gross School of the Visual Arts at Rutgers University in 2017. She is the recipient of the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Award and her work has been exhibited in the United States, Europe and Canada. Her work has appeared in numerous publications including ArtMaze Magazine, Nut Publication, and New American Paintings. In 2022, Hennelly was a resident artist of Palazzo Monti (Brescia). She lives and works in Montréal.
