Public Description: 

Penny Byrne's sculptural works are politically charged, highly engaging and often disarmingly humorous. Using materials such as bronze, glass, vintage porcelain figurines and found objects, Byrne's work presents an ongoing inquiry into popular culture and international politics. Her background in ceramics conservation and the law informs her practice. Byrne's ability to work across varying mediums and scales exemplifies how she challenges the boundaries and assumptions around her art.

In 2015 Byrne exhibited in Glasstress Gotika a collateral event of the 56th Venice Biennale.
