Exhibitions at Tripoli Gallery


Matisse studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York where she received an Honors Bachelor of Fine Arts. During her formative years, Matisse grew up traveling the world with her family before settling in Bridgehampton. This, in many ways, is evident in the collective nature of her installations. She has exhibited her work in both group and solo exhibitions locally and internationally, including in cities such as Sydney, Australia and Florence, Italy. Her work can be found in numerous collections and her practice has been the topic of several international publications. Her artistic practice focuses on detritus whereby she creates sculptures or installations of found objects, beach rubble or rusty antiques. She currently lives and works in Brisbane, Australia.
