Penny Burnett

Rambunctious, 2018

Oil on Masonite

Tondo 89cm

 

The Oxford Dictionary defines rambunctious as uncontrollably exuberant, even unruly.  I have interpreted the theme “Our Island Inheritance” as a reflect of this – turbulently active, wildly boisterous, complex yet also commandingly beautiful.  This work, Rambunctious brings together a cacophony of energetic marks into the unifying round form. Rambunctious doesn’t illustrate a set vista but rather offers the viewer a portal to reimagine our future.

The Evolving Garden

 

Penny Burnett

The Evolving Garden

7 March – 1 April 2018

Opening Wednesday 7 March 2018 at 5.30pm

Despard presents their first solo show of Tasmanian artist Penny Burnett. Her paintings focus on our relationship with space and nature. Penny uses the motif of the garden to expose tensions between nature and culture, authority and agency, she brings the viewer’s attention to the act of observing. With a recently completed PhD under her belt, The Evolving Garden, represents Penny as a distinctive contemporary painter.
