Large and small abstract land and seascapes in oil on canvas. Pastels on paper
Penny Hamblin spent the early part of her life in Hong Kong, returning to live in Brighton in her teens. She remained in Brighton to do her foundation at Brighton Art College, transferring to London to complete her degree and MA at Camberwell College of Art. She now works and lives in Selsey. Summers spent under the huge skies of Cornwall fuelled her obsession with the elements of sky and sea and a focus on life as seen through the eyes of the viewer: a view that extends beyond the picture plane towards the launching point of a distant horizon. Her paintings are constructed by building up thin layers of oil paint on canvas so that the finished effect is a journey into what lies beneath. As in nature, each gaze reveals something different.
