Penny Evans

Meet Penny Evans

Penny Evans is of Gamilaroi descent. Her mother’s family originates from northern Gomeroi in north-western
New South Wales. Evans has been a practising artist for more than 35 years. Her practice is based on process-
driven enquiry. The focus of her art is always identity, Country and decolonisation. Evans’s artwork creates a
trail over time that marks her decolonising journey back to Country. Her interrogation is through the process
of making, with ideas gathered from many people, places, from Country and kin. Her work is never about one
thing; it is always multilayered. Evans describes her work as a legacy for her children and family.
