Trauma Doll with Anxiety Objects

London-based artist Penny Goring’s poetry bleeds into all of her work as the core of her multifaceted art practice.

Figurative yet abstract, simple but potent, the dolls are suspended on the walls, facing away, upside-down, maimed or wounded, as though physically expressing emotions that can’t be put into words.

Purchased by Spiegelworld for Superfrico’s Artery collection.
