Ebony Truscott

The acutely observed detail of Ebony Truscott's paintings and works on paper reveal the artist's interest, not only in describing the visible, but also in depicting tactile and spatial experience.
 
Truscott's subjects are drawn from her immediate surroundings and include contemporary objects related to the body and the home: ventolin inhalers, earplugs, bricks, fruit and light bulbs are repeated motifs. The tradition of vanitas and still life painting is apparent here (the objects are used, fruit looks soft) and points to the passage of time, to human mortality.
 
Born in Warrnambool in 1977, Ebony Truscott completed a Bachelor of Fine Art (Painting) at Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne in 1997; and a Bachelor of Fine Art (First Class Honours) at Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne in 2003. Exhibiting since 1995, Truscott's work is held in a number of public and private collections including: Deakin University Collection; The National Library of Australia, The State Library of Victoria, The Besen Collection; The Orloff Collection and The Athenaeum Club, Melbourne.
