B. Fine Art
Lucia graduated with a BFA at the Tasmanian School of Art in 2003, has been awarded two Arts Tasmania Wilderness Residencies, and several public art commissions for the Tasmanian ArtSite Scheme. She has had four solo exhibitions and participated in numerous group exhibitions in Australia and Paris.
Lucia has been finalist in a number of awards including the National Photographic Portrait Prize (2014), and the City of Hobart Art Prize (2007). She presented a paper with nature writer Mark Tredinnick at the ‘Senses of Place Conference’, Tasmanian School of Art (2006), and at the Ballarat International Foto Biennale (BIFB, 2013) for the photographic symposium ‘Contesting Identities: Photography, narrative, and the self’. Lucia has been an artist in residence at the Cité Internationale des Arts (Paris) during which she also held a lecturing position at the École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts Le Mans. She has been working in conjunction with writer Vincent Hanon with a view to future publication of her Echo Chamber series (exhibited at the Eildon Gallery, Alliance Française in 2015), with text.
Lucia works with ongoing themes of body and mythology, as well as de-construction & re-construction. She often uses her self as subject within her works, using rituals of performance and choreography with her body, object and site, as well as with the medium & materials.
