David Penny

David Penny is an artist who explores the edges of photography, to make works that are ‘materially present’. He uses traditional still and moving image, sculptural processes as well as working with digital render, animation and 3D print. Penny’s work A Fallen Line of Marble Drums was represented at the Tblisi Art Fair, Georgia (2022) and SNEHTA, Athens (2021). Previous exhibitions include Remote Work at Grundy Art Gallery, Blackpool (2021) and Screen for Another Focus at Dovecot Gallery, Edinburgh (2018). His work is often informed by specific locations and spaces of work and production, and he has undertaken a number of residencies including at SNEHTA, Athens (2021), Dovecot, Edinburgh (2017), Hospitalfield, Arbroath (2017). In 2023 he will take part in the Pada Residency in Barrerio, Portugal.
