Penelope has signed a new contract

Geras-Tousignant is the new chosen gallery by Penelope, who after her stay
during her exhibition “We Are All Made of Stardust”
has decided to leave a footprint in the wonderful San Francisco.


Fallen in love with its magic and embracing atmosphere,
Penelope is already planning a new exhibition with James Geras,
the owner of the gallery.
He has also taken for himself
the drawing on glass ball “Altair”,
chosen from the exhibition
and immediately bought.

“Nature is my canvas”

Mostra_Chiara-18 copia

The materials that the artist chooses are absolutely unique: in the last months Penelope has begun using natural materials as canvases for her paintings and drawings. They are materials that have been picked up in her travels and that have been transformed sometimes even before arriving to her studio.


The artist has developed a very special technique that brings a symbolic and conceptual meaning within.
