About this Event

"Mirror" was originally exhibited at The Everard Read Gallery in Johannesburg, South Africa, and holds special significance as the merit award winner of the Everard Read Art Award. This captivating exhibition invites viewers to contemplate the continuum of cultural heritage, as depicted through video portraits of Penn's father and ink drawings.

Born and raised in South Africa, Richard Penn currently resides in Auckland, New Zealand, where he continues to create thought-provoking works of art. As an independent artist, Penn has garnered international acclaim for his exhibitions at prestigious venues such as Gallery AOP and Nirox Gallery in Johannesburg, Blank Projects in Cape Town, and The Origins Centre Museum at the University of the Witwatersrand. His diverse portfolio spans various mediums, including painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, and clay and ceramics. Most recently, he was awarded the Premier Prize at the Portage Ceramics Award in 2022. He celebrated his first New Zealand solo exhibition of ceramics and drawings at Public Record in Auckland in 2023.
