BIO

 

Erika Scott completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Visual Art) with Honours at the Queensland University of Technology in 2010. Scott was a founding director of the Artist Run Initiative ‘Accidentally Annie St Space’ and more recently runs projects on a rooftop (The Soylent Spot) in Red Hill. Scott has exhibited in the emerging category of the 2016 Redlands Konica Minolta Art Prize in Sydney, The Royal Queensland Show’s Pisciculture competition and at the David Pestorius Sweeney House in 2017 in Brisbane. Scott works in a variety of media often repurposing discarded household objects and furniture along with hobby materials and popular culture debris. Her visual language is built through inventive and unexpected reassembled materials.
