About

Lovesong is inspired by "The Souvenir" by Jean-Honore Fragonard. It sees a girl so besotted, she carves their name into a tree. This girl is however not interested in romance. Penelope Boyd (b. 1982) is a realist painter from Canberra, Australia. Adopting the traditional painting techniques of the Old Masters and borrowing from the vast catalogue of pre-industrial western art, particularly portraiture, her work is rich with an eerie sense of danger and uncertainty. In her latest series, isolated figures occupy lush, foreboding landscapes in an imagined, dreamlike world. Often masked, these girls are alone, comfortable with their seclusion and detached from any particular place or time, their identity and intentions unknown. Unlike the stilted portraits of high-born young ladies of art history, these girls inhabit a world of their own making, full of possibility and danger. They offer an escape, a fragmented narrative that invites the viewer to journey with them.
