Paintings


Penny Siopis' large-scale canvases draw on diverse sources for their imagery - newspapers and books, other art, direct experiences; these images are 'violent, erotic, tragic and beautiful; atavistic and elemental as well as social and analytical'. But the works are as much about materiality, chance and process, and the productive tensions between form and reference, and form and materiality, as Siopis describes in an accompanying conversation with Sarah Nuttall.
