"Discovering unappreciated aspects of Maine's rural landscape drives my creative process to uncover a deeper level of reality beneath the veneer of contemporary life."
Contemporary artist and photographer Penny Oliphant maintains an art studio in Kennebec Valley, Maine. She studied at The Portland School of Art and at The Art Institute of Boston.
"Penny Oliphant's limited edition archival photograph "The Artist's House" gives us a chilling feeling of isolation. The artist uses this dark captured moment to reflect on the frightening truth of loneliness in a place that should represent comfort, one's own home."
- Adriaan Van der Plas - VAN DER PLAS Gallery, NYC
Oliphant has recently exhibited her work internationally at The Yukyung Art Museum in South Korea and at galleries in Athens, Greece, and Berlin, Germany. She is represented by the Boothbay Art Foundation Gallery in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. Penny is preparing for a solo exhibition of her work next year at the Artifact Gallery in New York City.
