Simple Things

I've been very busy making work for various exhibitions and frequently forget to take photos of works in progress. But i have a small solo exhibition opening next week and so post this quickly here and hopefully may get back at more length very soon.

With these hands - Self-portrait 2 2015

Simple things - Linocuts
69 Smith Street Gallery

69 Smith Street, FITZROY 3065
Opening - Friday 23 October, 6 - 8 pm
21 October - 8 November 2015

Wed – Sat 11am – 5pm, Sun 12pm – 5pm

Penny Peckham works primarily as a printmaker, and with a background in Art History, much of the work she produces relates to her areas of research, particularly art by or relating to women. This exhibition includes linocut prints from several series.  The newest, which gives its title to the exhibition, is an exploration of simple still life elements. There are two works from the series  A Taxonomy of (Art)Cats,  prints of cats taken from various of Art Historical sources, and organized into playful scientific classifications, and the With these hands (self portrait) works are part of an ongoing series of long standing. 


  1. This looks great Penny and amazingly I will be in Melbourne that weekend! I can't make the opening but I'll definitely try to get to the show. Good luck!

  2. That would be great, Amanda. I won't be there during the day on the weekend sadly. It would have been nice to meet you.

  3. All the best for the opening Penny. I like the art history connection.
