The remixed and altered porcelain sculptures of ceramicist Penny Byrne typically have a political edge. Byrne’s strategies recall the strategies of Barnaby Barford and the late Click on Mort. She makes use of enamel paints, epoxy resin, putty, and different supplies to evolve these discovered statues.
“(Byrne) is an artist who utilises a wide range of mediums to create sculptural works that at occasions elicit visceral responses from viewers,” her assertion says. “She is anxious with the state of the world and our place in it. Her works ask us to contemplate the place we stand and the way we really feel, by no means preaching, however relatively gently guiding us to a deeper understanding of our occasions. She shouldn’t be afraid to sort out the large points head on, typically with wry humor and wit, and all the time with a deeply thought of and clever compassion.”
