CV

Sweet+Shore

A visual artist (painter), Anne Penman Sweet has been exhibiting internationally for nearly two decades. She is a graduate of Central Saint Martins (University of the Arts London) and is represented by the Rebecca Hossack Gallery in London. Jesse Shore was Senior Curator of Sciences at Sydney's Powerhouse Museum for many years specialising in science communication and the creation of exhibitions. He is the founder of Prismatic Sciences, a science communication consultancy.

As Sweet+Shore we first exhibited at May Space Gallery in Sydney in the Art+Science exhibition in 2013 and since then we have focused on developing our work together. In our first full year exhibiting we were finalists in the 2017 Adelaide Perry Drawing Prize in Sydney, the Lethbridge 10000 Small Scale Art Award 2017 in Brisbane, and the Lloyd Rees Art Prize 2017 at Colville Gallery in Hobart. As a solo artist Anne has been a finalist in several art prizes including Sydney's Paddington Art Prize, the Celeste Art Prize UK and Sydney's Salon des Refuses. 

“The new paintings on aluminium which we are seeing for the first time have an extraordinary luminosity and presence. Working on this unforgiving surface highlights the skill and unique 'voice' of the artist Anne Penman Sweet.  The collaboration with scientist Dr Jesse Shore seems to have delivered a distinctly different visual language from her solo oeuvre, although the paint qualities and elegant manipulation of colour and mark remain evident in all her work.  The paintings evoke a visceral emotional intensity through their depiction of colour and form.”

Like many artists and galleries, our plans have been curtailed in the last two years due to COVID. We have been using this time to refine and develop our working methodologies, create new artwork and finalise plans for new studio and workshop spaces. We are looking forward to resuming our exhibition programme in the near future.
