Penelope Stewart is a site-sensitive installation artist who works across the varied media of: sculpture, installation, photography, works on paper and architectural interventions. Central to her practice is an engagement with space and place – its architecture, history, politics, ideology, and environment. Whether it is her large-scale beeswax architectures, or her trompe l’oeil photographs, Stewart brings a sensory intensification, a haptic quality, to the encounter.
Stewart’s exhibition history includes: the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, New York; the Koffler Centre for the Arts, Toronto; Musée d'Art de Joliette, Québec; Musée Barthétè, Boussan, France; Oakville Galleries, Ontario; Tom Thomson Art Gallery, Ontario; ACT Design Museum Canberra, Australia; Poimena Gallery, Launceston, Tasmania, Australia. In 2015, Stewart will mount a solo exhibition at Flowers Gallery at Dawson College, Montréal.
