Penny Davenport

Penny’s practice involves making drawings with an automatic and unconsidered approach.  The drawings are an unconscious outpouring of absorbed experiences that are hard to place and lost to meaning, depending on the viewer’s interpretation and conjecture.

They often change shape both in tone and content, relying on unpredictable turns and fortuitous twists.  The drawing eventually resolves itself.  Often there is a narrative or concept, which is later applied by Penny, but not often revealed to the viewer.
