She is represented by Sullivan+Strumpf Fine Art, Sydney, Australia. Penny Byrne is a visual artist who uses materials such as vintage porcelain figurines and other found objects to create artworks that wield a powerful political message. These manipulated, mutilated and painted figurines explore issues concerning the environment, pop culture and global politics, all presented through Byrne’s inimitable mix of wry satire and playful humour. Byrne’s reputation as a respected ceramics conservator informs her practice, rendering her works as meticulous and studied subversions.  photo PennyByrne5_zpsd4871f04.jpg  photo 56775-6861032-7_zpse119d73d.jpg  photo PennyByrne10_zps4abf95e5.jpg
