Penny, Plastic Jesus: The Devil in the Detail
Apr 22-May 24
Penny finds inspiration in everyday objects and often overlooked ephemera but money is the most prominent recurring theme in his work, which he regards as ''representative of a sinister voyeur, an omnipresent force watching over its subjects''. Often questioning the norms in society Plastic Jesus confronts our compliance of culture and current affairs. The artist uses scale and contradiction as a means to highlight issues and opinions that often go unquestioned.
