Ebony Truscott, Bucket with drawing board, cloth and inhaler, 2019, oil on linen, 77 x 61cm

NOW REPRESENTING: Ebony Truscott

Niagara Galleries is excited to announce the representation of 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.

Sangeeta Sandrasegar,  she wrapped a bandage round her eyes and vowed to share the darkness, 2019, pierced and cut paper, hand dyed in Natural Indigo approximately 24 x 40cm, from the installation of 101 pierced and cut paper works

NOW REPRESENTING: Sangeeta Sandrasegar

Sangeeta Sandrasegar works within a research-based practice, building narratives in which new work connects to previous projects. The artist's practice consolidates postcolonial and hybridity theory, exploring her life in Australia and the relationship between migrant communities and homelands.

Sangeeta Sandrasegar's practice has consistently engaged with shadow as a formal and symbolic motif in developing these themes. The artist manipulates shadow in all forms to create images and effects that are ephemeral and powerful. Sandrasegar's diverse application of the silhouette gives a voice to the identities of people caught on the margins of society. These fluctuating shadows and ephemeral visual effects subtly address the ambiguous status of individuals caught in a complex social structure.

Sangeeta Sandrasegar's representation of contemporary narratives considers the beauty and brutality of the contemporary world. She weaves together theory and artistic motifs inspired by various cultures and her work demonstrates that political statements can be made within the realm of visual poetics.
