Pennie Lordan

Pennie has an interest in exploring the stark contrasts and the parallels that exist between experiences such as loss and hope, sensitivity and brutality, isolation and connectedness. Pennie’s oil paintings are developed from studies that are inspired by location sketches as well as film, music, print making and recently some long exposure night photography. Studies are created on preprepared grounds which reference a sense of composition and atmosphere. These studies are then developed through the process of multiple thin layers of oil paint and a combination of linseed oil, solvent and cold wax, often applied, wiped back and reapplied extending the range of tone, temperature and opacity - attempting to demonstrate the contrast and parallels that have been experienced and observed. Oil paintings are created on substrates from linen, canvas and timber panels to primed disregarded or found materials such as pitched pine and aluminium.

Pennie was born in and grew up in London and after studying art & design Pennie worked for five years in animation before returning to study art & design and education at University of Hertfordshire and received a first class honours. Pennie attended Leith School of Art in Edinburgh to study contemporary landscape painting and exhibits and sells work nationally through exhibitions and her studio gallery in York UK.
