In all their vastness and intimacy, the spirited landscapes of Colin Pennock visualise the profound valency of memory. Responding to his immediate surrounds in the Noosa Hinterland as well as remembered moments from his Irish homeland, the artist creates visceral compositions that materialise the experiential and emotional undulations of life. Stratified swoops of oil cast a space where formlessness meets the pictorial; where the haze of the past diffuses into the crisp clarity of the present.
The works canvas that ubiquitous nexus between geographical and emotional landscapes, looking at how we often set out in search of something only to diverge down a new road.
Colin Pennock has exhibited nationally and internationally and his work is held in prominent collections including the University of Ulster, the British Consulate in New York and Washington, the Brian Sewell Collection in London and the Hawkesbury Regional Gallery Collection. Pennock was the winner of the Alan Gamble Award, Mosman Art Prize (2005) and has been a finalist in the Len Fox Painting Award (2016), Mosman Art Prize (2014) and Fleurieu Peninsula Art Prize (2008, 2004).
