Tricky Walsh

Australia Council for the Arts Residency

Tricky Walsh is a non-binary artist working in New Norfolk, Tasmania, who works both collaboratively and in a solo capacity, using architecture, painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, sound, film, comics and radio. Tricky’s projects focus on spatial and communicative concerns in a speculative manner, allowing conceptual parameters to determine the material experimentation that occurs within these broader themes.

Tricky Walsh has exhibited at The Mao Jihong foundation in collaboration with Centre Pompidou, Monash University Museum of Art, the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery and the privately funded Detached Cultural Organisation and was included in the 2013 Mona Foma festival at The Museum of Old and New Art, Hobart Tasmania (2013). They were awarded a Qantas Foundation Art Encouragement award (2012) and the 2009 Hobart Art prize (2009) as well as a recipient of numerous Australia Council and Arts Tasmania grants, and residencies in New York, Jogjakarta, China and Paris.
