Penny Byrne (Aus)

Penny Byrne is a visual artist who meticulously reconstructs manipulated figurines from damaged and antiquated ceramic objects into artworks that wield a political message. The use of fragile ceramics contradicts the political messages evident in her work. Byrne’s satirical viewpoint confronts a number of contemporary political issues that presents an ongoing inquiry into popular culture and international politics. Her training as a ceramics conservator informs her practice. She has completed a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) at La Trobe University, Melbourne 1997, a Bachelor of Art (Fine Art Ceramics) at RMIT University in Melbourne, 1987 and a Graduate Diploma (Ceramics and Glass Conservation and Restoration) at West Dean College in the United Kingdom, 1990. Byrne is currently represented by Sullivan+Strumpf Gallery, Sydney NSW Australia.
