🔳🗿Penny Siopis is a South African artist who lives in Cape Town.

In the 1980s, Siopis produced history paintings that addressed race and gender representation in public narratives.

During the ’90s, she began making prints, video works, and monumental installations.

In a series of hand-printed lithographs, Siopis mines the psychology of teenage girls living in black townships in South Africa.

"As remote as these references might appear, they resonate powerfully for me with things we might see or imagine in our contemporary moment," she says.
