Chin Chuck, Julia Trybala 2022

Trybala centres her work on the complexity of human relationships, drawing inspiration from personal experiences, conversations with friends and family, and art historical references. The politics of the feminine body in space is central to Trybala’s work. In her carefully composed paintings, closely cropped, ambiguous body parts are entangled as fleshy planes contort and push to the edge of the frame. Intimacy, tenderness and fragility are expressed through subtle gestures and expressions, rendered in luscious, velvety paint that flows across the canvas.

Julia exhibited work in Melbourne Now, at the National Gallery of Victoria, Australia (2023) and has work held in the Artbank Collection, Australia. She was a finalist in the 2021 Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Award. Trybala currently lives and works in Melbourne, Australia and holds a Bachelor of Fine Art from RMIT University (2016). She has been exhibiting regularly since 2015 with exhibitions held in Melbourne, Sydney, Geelong, Perth, as well as internationally in Singapore, France and Italy.
