About the Item: Collaged Scientific American articles, plaster, acrylic and graphite on handmade wooden panel. Artist's Statement: "Despite the advances we’ve made in technology, there’s something to be said for the things we still cannot control or predict. There’s a mystery and a reverence that remains in systems that have their own agendas such as weather patterns and earth processes. A hurricane has no regard for the humans who have settled along the coast, and communities cannot influence its trajectory. Earthquakes have no awareness of gentrification or the cost of living, but the San Andrea’s Fault is a god worthy of fear. Few places on Earth are as geologically complicated as California. Lyrically complex. The ribs of the land show through its landscape. The San Andrea's Fault is 750 miles long and more than 25 million years old." 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.
