About Tricia Trinder

In her Sydney studio, Tricia creates atmospheric ocean horizons using beeswax, damar resin and dry pigments. She concentrates on how the light reflects on the water through different times of the day and weather. Her horizons give a sense of inner calmness and serenity and encourages the viewer to contemplate what is beyond.

Tricia creates the illusion of distance in her paintings using light and dark. She uses texture to create the idea of waves and water, and light on the horizon to distinguish between times of day. Tricia says “Encaustic lends itself beautifully to images of water because the natural element of beeswax reflects the natural texture and translucency of water, also the unpredictability of how the wax responds each time I burn in the colour, reflects the unpredictability of the ocean and skies”.
Over the past year Tricia has had numerous Solo and group shows around Sydney and participates in The Other Art Fair.
