About The Artwork

Ode to Bruegel's "The Triumph of Death" was exhibited as part of Penelope Hunt’s 2015 solo show ‘Remains to be seen’. Consisting of a series of contemporary photographs, it explored the abandoned painting studio of close relative and Official WW2 War Artist Alan Moore. Ode to Bruegel's "The Triumph of Death" is one of a series of images that explored the weight so often contained within personal artifacts in an attempt to disentangle the spaces between the real, the imagined, the stories told and the remains left behind. Paints, both used and pristine, lay around the studio in a palimpsest of time, encrusted tubes becoming a documentation of practice itself. The images exist in the present whilst exploring fragments of the past in a studio that has effectively become a Still Life.

Penelope Hunt’s photographic and video works, whilst often of a personal nature poetically explore universal themes around time, mortality and the transitory nature of our existence. These observational works all contain a sense of stillness, beckoning the viewer to pause and take time to look. There is an endless quality to the work, particularly within the video pieces, as they fail to reach a conclusion and meditatively mirror the ongoing nature and palimpsest of time and our existence within it.
