Ebony Truscott, Self-inflating mattress, paper, rock and inhaler, 2014, oil on linen, 72 x 56 cm
The Comfort of Gravity
12 to 28 June 2015
Opening night Friday 12 June 6pm-8pm
Ebony Truscott depicts objects alluding to the human senses in these still life paintings from the last three years.
There is a stillness and clarity to her descriptions which comes from extended observation and a disciplined drawing practice. Truscott makes measured preliminary drawings and manipulates the lighting of her arrangements carefully.
Her compositions include homely and strange objects; an asthma inhaler, a self inflating mattress, foam earplugs, the plastic model of a hand. Despite Truscott's off-beat groupings there is an over-arching sense that these are very personal works. Themes of rest and quietude are salient, as suggested in the exhibition's title.
