This gift was a burden at first, being so sensitive in a world that is so intense.But like many artists who are at first overwhelmed by their heightened sense of perception, Penn eventually learned how to channel this sensitivity and transmute it into useful inspiration.[/x_text][x_image type=”rounded” src=”https://quietlunch.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/quiet-lunch-jeremy-penn_10.jpg” alt=”” link=”false” href=”#” title=”” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=””][x_custom_headline level=”h6″ looks_like=”h6″ accent=”false”]WRITTEN BY AKEEM K.

Penn, with respects to the lasting trail of time, has his way with nostalgia—appropriating vintage magazine clipping, often bathing their imagery in a library hues. This formula is the result of Penn’s understanding of evolution and the omniscient role it plays in our everyday lives.[/x_text][x_line][x_text]

His overall concept maintains a focus on the cultivation and culmination of one’s potential. Penn takes this concept even instagramfurther by applying it to gender politics. He proudly admits that his paintings, bearing the visages of supermodels, pinups and pioneers, are homages to the ownership feminine energy, women’s liberation and the ongoing issue of women’s civil rights.
