Love is a Battlefield
Penny Byrne’s large-scale editioned bronze work, titled Love is a Battlefield, continues to utilise the familiar visual language of porcelain figurines that she has become so well known for. Through a change in scale these new works take on a powerful presence not usually associated with the artist’s practice. Penny Byrne is a visual artist who up until now has utilised materials such as vintage porcelain figurines, children’s toys and other smaller scale found objects to create artworks that wield a powerful political message. Byrne’s often humorous and satirical viewpoint presents an ongoing inquiry into popular culture and international politics.
