Preoccupied with the crisis of climate change, Robyn Penn’s work sees images of clouds, glaciers and oceans act as reccurring references to climate change debates as well as a symbols for an uncertainty and unease that is both global and personal. Influenced by Romanticism as well as Japanese ukiyo-e painting, Penn’s meditative renderings across various media – including painting, drawing, printmaking and sculpture - explore the opposing feelings of intense anxiety and acute wonder that characterise the Sublime. Penn alludes at times to fleshy corpulence in her renderings of pink toned, painterly clouds in oils; while in her prints and ink drawings she explores feelings of mutability and intangibility in complex mark making and deft use of contrast.
