A jellyfish appears alone in an endless void. Leaving only the features of the creature to examine, a closer look reveals strange shapes and lettering. How did this animal come to bear these unnatural features? 

Penelope Davis creates forms like this one by combining debris with organic fragments. Manually stitching these elements together, the artist births intricate hybrids that personify the contemporary concerns of the human impact on the environment. ‘Untitled’ is one of Davis' many works created as part of her endeavour to rekindle an affinity for the natural world. 

Hailing from Melbourne, Davis is a post-photographic artist, renowned for her ability to produce camera-less photographs. Her work transcends conventional photography, as she explores new ways to capture an image through camera-less photograms or scans. Her work is held in numerous collections nationally and internationally, including the National Gallery of Victoria and University of Melbourne as well as private collections internationally.

A visually intricate and thought-provoking work of art, ‘Untitledis a striking find for collectors of contemporary art and admirers of new media.
