Maker's Details - Seume, Penny

Layered acrylic and pastel paintings and collages printed onto lampshades, or sewn into cushions.

Category: Textiles

Penny’s work stems originally from glimpses of the urban landscape viewed in her travels – intriguing details in stone facades, the textural qualities of apartment buildings and the unique colours and atmosphere of a city. Capturing these initially through photography and sketches, a visual reference of patterns and lines is created and then translated further back in the studio into layered acrylic and pastel paintings and collages. Penny then selects high quality natural fabrics as a base on which to print details selected from these, using contemporary digital printing techniques with acid reactive dyes. The resulting fabric is handmade into lampshades, or sewn into cushions, providing a functional but personal and abstracted view of the city.
