Pia Truscott

Bio

Pia is a painter and exhibition maker, currently in her fourth year at Michaelis School of Fine Arts. In her practice, she predominantly works with found objects and the way colour can spark new conversations. She matriculated from Westerford highschool in 2017 and does freelance illustration work. In 2019, she enrolled at Michaelis with painting as her majors. She has exhibited in a four-part series of Connecting through Creativity exhibitions and in Turbine’s ‘Paper’ exhibition (2020). She tends to work with found objects found in scrapyards and skips, painted in bright colours to create new meaning. The colours start conversations one another in playful interactions. She aims to create art that is interactive, playful and accessible. She draws inspiration from collaging with magazines and gathering scrap materials.

“I often feel like my works are like verbs because they’re always moving and they’re
always doing something. I want to make work that people can touch and feel and interact
with.”
