Penny Coss  manipulates formal elements from the tradition of abstract expressionism. Her paintings, derived from interpretations of the landscape and often allude to landscapes that have troubled histories. 

       “My work is about those important moments of exchange within the landscape and with the possibility of being simultaneously in there and out there.” A form of psychogeography, Coss' response to landscape is situational; her encounters with the natural environment , its biology, botany and geology with oblique references to energy and landscape systems in nature is expressed through  a refined process of paint application, most recently through staining and pouring.
