Australian artist Penny Byrne’s sculptural works are politically charged, highly engaging and often disarmingly humorous. She uses materials such as bronze, glass, vintage porcelain figurines and found objects to create artworks that present an ongoing inquiry into popular culture and international politics. Her training as a ceramics conservator informs her practice. Her work has been exhibited internationally including at The Venice Biennalle 2015, with Coates and Scarry and at Saatchi Gallery, London 2014, and at Art Basel Hong Kong 2013.She has also shown extensively in Australia.Born in the regional town of Mildura in 1965, Byrne now lives in Melbourne and is represented by Coates and Scarry and Fehily Contemporary.
