New Grandma porcelain figures by Penny Byrne New Grandma porcelain figures by Penny Byrneby Michela on Jan 2, 2014
Penny Byrne is a visual artist from Melbourne, Austalia.
She is an interesting and emblematic creator who trasforms vintage porcelain statuettes in new humorous figures. Her training as a restorer of ceramics has established a strong support to her practice as an artist. The execution of her inventions is actually less important than the expressed message. Indeed Byrne works with ceramic to convey critical messages against the current International politics.
She urges us to pay attention to the warnings of our times.
Born in Sardinia 26 years ago, now living in Genoa. She has a degree in art history and has a passion for taking photographs of strangers on the train. She spends more money on concerts and shows than food.
