Artwork of the week features this adorably troublesome dynamic duo. Straight off the television and into the creative imagination of artist Ruth Mutch, these two penguins represent Walter and Jesse off the enormously popular programme Breaking Bad. We all are familiar with these two characters and seeing them in the guise of the penguin throws an interesting and somewhat ironic twist to their personas.
‘Penguins on Screen’ is an exhibition of new work by Ruth Mutch, and each piece depicts the characters of some of her favourite programmes and films, all through the cute and playful penguin. Ruth has had a long-standing adoration of the penguin, and many of her penguin artworks can be found on her Penguin Parade website. Ruth works both free-hand and on the computer, and with the help of her mother she has developed many penguin themed products such as mugs, pencil cases, coasters and more. A small selection of these are currently for sale in our shop. There are a few of Ruth’s artworks listed on our online shop and even more in the actual gallery shop.
The show is up in our Gallery II until the 13th of April. ‘Penguins on Screen‘ sits beside ‘Cats… the 2nd instalment’, which is in our main gallery space. Both shows are sure to put a smile on your face.
