People who have saved this event:


Pennie Elfick, contemporary abstract painter, will have a solo show at Taunton Brewhouse, curated by Close Ltd. Opening 6 August - 11 September 2022, Elfick will present her atmospheric compositions.


“I realised some time ago that when I am working I am constantly in conversation with myself, sometime it is a dialogue, sometimes I am weighing up the pros and cons of what I am doing, asking myself about the colour, the shape, the spaces, I wouldn’t like to say that I get answers but it seems to be part of my working process.“

Elfick is a contemporary abstract artist. Her interest in the natural landscape has been a major source of inspiration. Her visual language has developed through her admiration for the great minimalist artists Robert Motherwell, Ellsworth Kelly, Richard Diebenkorn, Barnett Newman, and Agnes Martin.

Elfick presents atmospheric compositions of simplified geometric shapes, they express a vocabulary of reductive simple paintings. This show heralds three decades of prolific dedication to her art practice, which explores arrangements of horizontal and vertical bands in a range of muted colours using acrylic and oil paints. Characterised by austere lines and grids superimposed upon grounds of contemplative colour, these works elegantly negotiate the confines of structure, space and draughtsmanship.

The paintings encourage the viewer to engage in their meditative qualities. She lives and works in Somerset.

Elfick graduated with a Masters Degree in painting from Wimbledon School of Art.
