Dr Penny Dunstan completed a PhD in Fine Art, Wayfinding through Shadowlands: Making Minescapes Matter, where she studied rehabilitated lands of Rix’s Creek open-cut coal mine near Singleton NSW. Her art practice is centred in an embodied walking method requiring one to be present in place, to feel the land pushing back at your fee. Blending histories of created lands with new territorial dialogues between animals, plants and humans, Penny’s art manifests as drawing, writing, installation and lensless photography.
Penny works as an Environmental Project Manager supervising biosolids reuse on farms and mine rehabilitation in the Hunter Valley.
