Penelope’s work is like watching a snapshot of a conversation between objects that have unexpected relationships. She works between sculpture and photography and this dialog between something physical and its image holds a beautiful tension. I appreciate that she works beyond the mold of what I see produced today,in a seemingly effortless display of color and craft. A fresh and fun break into the brain, a sight for sore eyes. — Trisha Rhomberg
