3 DEC - 23 JAN
An Exhibition of Paper-Cuts
Paper-cut artist Ian Penney lives in an old weatherboard house on the East Sussex coast with his wife and two children. He graduated from Manchester Polytechnic with an MA in illustration in 1984. Central to his practice is paper-cut, but he has illustrated numerous children's picture books, created images for greetings cards, magazines, puzzles, packaging, advertising and design.
This specially commissioned show for the Christmas season features the principal characters from the Harlequinade; a traditional part of Comedia de L'Arte Victorian pantomime, plus paper-cuts of the pantomime and scenes from Pollocks Toy Theatre.
Ian is currently represented by the Rebecca Hossack Gallery in London and New York. He has had three solo shows with Rebecca and sells all over the world with work currently in Jakarta and Miami. This will be his first solo exhibition in the South East of England.
