DESCRIPTION

In the project space is the debut exhibition of Polly Penrose. Penrose began taking photographs when she was a teen. She would aim the camera towards herself investigating her emotions, body and identity. This same impetuous became her practice as seen in her highly evocative, whimsical image making.
 
Penrose uses her body as her subject interacting with objects such as paper, yoga mats, balloons and other everyday elements. Her face is always obscured and her identity changes, in every picture she becomes an integral part of the landscape or an object. She is molded into her own muse.
