Hi All,  I've curated Noel Hensey's solo exhibition at Peak, London. See more details below.  Best,  J PRESS RELEASE Noel Hensey presents 'Homage' , his first U.K. solo exhibition at Peak , London, curated by Joshua Y'Barbo. The exhibition is part of  'Distant Peak', Peak's  series of shows to mark the closure of their Elephant and Castle premises. For the installation, Hensey will show two sculptures from his  'Homage'   Series. ' Homage'  No.1 is an homage to Picasso's  'Self Portrait Facing Death' , and No.2 is an homage to Basquiat's  'Untitled Angel'.  Hensey created ' Homage'  No.1 after noticing a similarity between spotlights in a train carriage and the eyes of Picasso's original. As a result, Hensey modified two L.E.D. lights, using a sandblaster, to dilate one profile and increased the penetrative characterisation of the other after the Picasso original
