Penelope Dalton is an artist, critic and writer.[1]

Education[edit]

Dalton trained at Goldsmiths, University of London and Brighton University and gained a PhD in Creative studies from Plymouth University in 2008.[2]

Career[edit]

Dalton taught studio practice and critical theory at Dartington College of Arts and Birmingham City University.[3]

Dalton spent many years as an academic researcher in socially contextualised practice in printmaking and art education, drawing on feminist and linguistic theory.[4] In recent years she has eschewed 'theory'. The arts - she now believes - are being absorbed within the economies of entertainment, social welfare and consumerism. Her recent work returns to a modernist approach, and focusses on the materiality of painting as an imaginative practice of analogy and poetics.
