Sweet+Shore is an art and science based creative collaboration. My name is Anne Penman Sweet and I’m a visual artist (painter) and I’ve been exhibiting in London as well as here in Australia for many years. My partner is Dr Jesse Shore who has a long and distinguished science background as Senior Curator of Sciences at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney, particularly in the area of science communication and exhibitions.

We meet in our appreciation and wonder of the natural world and natural phenomena, and the potential to creatively interpret them in multiple ways.

Our materials of choice are aluminium composite panels cut into various geometric shapes which are used individually or in groupings. The panels are then primed with numerous layers of hand-made glue gesso ground which, after many hours of preparation and sanding, provide a luminous and light-reflective surface for the oil paint. One of the satisfying aspects of our work is the marriage of the old (glue gesso is one of the most traditional art materials) with the new (aluminium composite panels are one of the newest).

In the earlier posts I give a potted history of the various themes of my work over the last decade or so, and I also document the beginnings of our collaborative work which began a couple of years ago.

In the meantime if you’re interested, here are our other websites to peruse.

Anne is represented by the Rebecca Hossack Gallery, London/NYC.
