Snapshots – Mr Penfold – The Tate – Sydney

‘The Hours’ launched their first specially curated solo show at The Tate last week, on show was the vibrant work of UK artist Mr Penfold. The artists’ first solo exhibition on Aussie shore, titled  ‘Bric ‘a’ Brac’, was also the last show at The Tate for the year. His paintings shone in the space; vividly bright, bold and incredibly crisp. The artists’ skill with a paintbrush and impeccably smooth line work were a pleasure to behold. Some of the pieces moved away from his traditional character portraiture and moved more towards abstraction, breaking apart and reassembling parts of his characters to build abstract forms.
