Penny Pollard


Penny’s award-winning work has been shown nationally and internationally. Her art is poetically articulate and highly distinctive. The work explores complex ideas of layered personal identity and the public/interpersonal perceptions and assumptions of individual character; the initially seen surfaces and the underlying unseen strengths and fragilities. Penny who identifies as Deaf is fascinated by faces, masks and skulls. She works and reworks these motifs to address questions of subjectivity, portraiture, appearance, and labels. Beginning her contemporary jewellery studies at NMIT in Collingwood in 2002 she went on to complete a Master of Fine Arts by research at Monash University in 2013. She now lives and works in Melbourne.
