Ebony Truscott is a Melbourne-based artist employing observational realism in painting and works on paper. Her work is marked by an interest in human sensation and perception, particularly the relationship between sight and touch.

Handheld Ellipse, Recent Paintings brings together still life paintings from the last two years that are at once formal and personal. Truscott’s compositions are attentive and unflinching in their description of disparate objects, their surface qualities and the space they occupy. Found and constructed solids; cones, cylinders, domes and bricks sit with reflective or transparent forms to induce palpable and uncanny associations.

The making and presentation of Handheld Ellipse, Recent Paintings was made possible by an Arts Project grant from the Australian Council for the Arts.

We invite you to come and hear the artist, Ebony Truscott talk about her work and practice at Sutton Projects on Saturday May 13th at 1.30pm. This talk will be AUSLAN interpreted.
