About the Item: Artist's Statement: "Embracing the dynamism of a changing landscape as viewed through 'geologic time,' EARTH THROUGH TIME references 650 million years of transmutation in the Providence Mountains. Paintings feature environmental tropes that associate land changes with surface techniques that are additive and reductive. Paint and plaster applied and removed, above pages from Michel Digonnet’s book “Hiking the Mojave Desert” oiled, burned and glued to wooden panels. My process is intended to mimic earth processes of deposition and erosion." BIO BRITNEY PENOUILH (b. New Orleans, LA) is an interdisciplinary artist whose interest in geology and natural environments has greatly influenced her work. In 2010, Penouilh earned a double major Fine Art Studio and Geology from the University of New Orleans. Through university studies in New Orleans, Greece, and Japan and artist residencies in New York, North Carolina, Alaska and California – and her interest in geology, Penouilh’s work connects landscape to ritual, and ties the spiritual realm to the scientific. In 2018-19, Penouilh worked with National Park Services on a residency within the Mojave National Preserve. Penouilh was recently a visiting artist at Pilgrim School in Los Angeles, CA where she taught interdisciplinary art to high school 3-D art students. This program included a geology field trip to collect minerals that students cast into plaster sculptures. Penouilh currently resides in Los Angeles, where she divides her time between teaching and creating art in her downtown studio.
