Creative Kernow

Vanessa Penrose

I work with mixed media including: ceramic, photography, drawing, thread, wire, print, paper and wax.

I am interested in the Post-Industrial landscape within which we live and the sense of space and place that grows from that.

Over the years I have been influenced by a piece of poetry by TS Eliot:

‘Between the idea and the reality

between the motion and the act

falls the shadow…’

In my work my focus often lies in the “spaces between” where a potential exists – a space that is ambiguous and mysterious and is both the playground of the imagination and a place where fear resides.
