Penny Coss is mindful that all aspects of the painting process should equally become the viewers’ experience. Her practice has evolved from the tradition of abstract expressionism, taking its formal elements and melding them into a unique gestural language. With a keen sensitivity to colour and composition, Coss stains canvas and paper through a process of pouring layers of thinned pigment directly onto their surfaces. The staining and soaking technique is permeated with new interpretations of the Australian landscape.
