Zoömorphic motifs redolent of an unknown antiquity, indeterminate provenance and a timeless quality that confounds immediate cultural constraints animate my sculptural work.

As a child, I would comb through encyclopedias and fixate on the transparent overlays of the human body, plant structures, and the anatomy of animals. Today, science textbooks often provide me with the imagery for my work. Combining the orderly elements of scientific images and ideas with the expressive nature of painting is what compels me to paint. Further inspiration for my work comes from connecting memories and emotions from my personal life to the living world around me.

The inspiration for the stoneware, porcelain, and earthenware pottery I am displaying in this exhibit comes from a series of pieces I began four years ago which focused on exploring a traditional Japanese pottery form known as a ‘rice bale bottle.’  This series started with attempts to make faithful reproductions of pieces that I sketched while visiting potteries in Japan.  Eventually my artistic interest led to transformations that share only subtle commonalities with the originals.

I primarily paint and draw urban landscapes which include residential and industrial areas, freeways and the occasional interior or still life. These works are representational but not photographic. My aim is to find an underlying character in what may appear to be an unremarkable subject.

Motherhood is a role that crosses cultural, social, and economic boundaries, yet is often portrayed simply as an archetype or stereotype. The photographs in my work approach motherhood through ideas, feelings, stereotypes, and documentation. Along the way they deal with the emotional and physical struggle between living a creative life and having children.

Fruits, plants, and vegetables have long had profound symbolic meanings in art, literature, and mythology.  My sculpture reflects on humans’ relationships to the natural world.  These botanically-inspired works are formal explorations that touch on ideas of growth, abundance, and ephemerality.

My work is either for or about the home. I am drawn to the domestic environment through personal artifacts, repetitious rituals and intimate relationships. The events and memories associated with these places shapes our perceptions. To me, the home is more than a specific place or structure. It is often feeling and/or geographic location.

The Commons, Randy Penner Revisited: Watercolors for “the Necessary”

The Commons, Randy Penner Revisited: Watercolors for “the Necessary”

Presented by the Octagon House Museum in collaboration with The Phipps
October 31st - November 30th, 2014

During his long artistic career, former Hudsonite Randy Penner (1921 – 2002) was an illustrator for printing, calendar, and aviation companies, including Brown & Bigelow in St. Paul. He later opened Pennerama Studio in his home overlooking Lake Mallalieu on Riverside Drive North, where he worked primarily in fine art watercolors. Penner was an active member of the American Society of Aviation Artists and the Midwest Watercolor Society, for which he served as president from 1985 – 87. His paintings hang in private and corporate collections throughout the United States, and his work has been exhibited widely across the country, including a show in 1983 at The Phipps.

Randy Penner Revisited features 23 paintings which were anonymously donated to the St. Croix County Historical Society to be used to raise funds for a new public restroom building, aka “the Necessary,” at the Octagon House Museum in Hudson. Throughout the exhibition period, the paintings will be for sale at “buy it now” prices, and a silent auction event will be held on Tuesday, December 2, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
