PENELOPE STUTTERHEIME

BIOGRAPHY

PENELOPE STUTTERHEIME
(b. 1958 Cape Town, South Africa)

 
She is largely self-taught and has been painting for twenty-eight years. She has participated in various group exhibitions and sold through private galleries.

Penelope's latest paintings have evolved from her earlier landscapes, though they make use of the same impasto application of oil paint. Her subject is presented in haptic images that are symbolic and layered. The work is a metaphor of the transformative processes that unfold in the body and psyche. The title of one of her exhibitions, ‘A Way Through’, refers to the experiential quality of her works; the paintings aim to subject both the artist & viewer to the possibility of moving through different states of consciousness.

Colour is a medium of its own in Stutterheime’s works. Contrasting colours afford glimpses into further aspects of consciousness, the borders of the fields presenting a conduit for the flow between inner & outer awareness.
