Artist, penny d, jones is based in Pembrokeshire and Cardiff she uses a variety of media and processes to make her work including painting, collage, video and conceptual practices.

“This piece came to me after what has been happening to me this year, making work for the blind – a textured black quilt and suffering a deep depression myself which has passed with a helping hand.”

“Daeth y gwaith ar ôl i fi weithio gyda deillion ac wedi bod fy hunan yn yr iselder ysbryd eleni. Gwnes i glytwaith mawr o wahanol wead ac yn ddu i ddeillion. Dwi’n teimlo yn iawn nawr ar ôl i fi wedi cael y llaw yn helpu fi.”

Penny’s exhibition Teimlo Llais (Feeeling Voice) can be seen at Oriel Mwldan in Cardigan from 8 September – 7 October 2018

Teimlo Llais is an interactive installation comprising a fabric quilt, a ceramic quilt and the voices of women speaking in Welsh. The exhibition is a culmination of the research and development project Llais Menywod in 2016 which highlighted the need for the women’s voice to be heard. The focus on touch and sound makes the exhibition suitable for blind and partially sighted people.

There will be a performance from a local Welsh women’s choir to launch the exhibition through a collaboration with penny d jones at the opening on 7 September at 6:20pm
