Tucker’s works are often based on the disruption of systems, alongside creation of chaotic states so pervasive they resemble systems. They often contain allusions to depth or three-dimensionality, in combination with a consciousness of surface. With Emblem, she creates a sculptural support where compositional elements are locked into place before painting begins. In doing this, she aims to anchor her painting process to a negotiation between the connection and separation of object and surface. The collection of forms that make up the support are disjointed enough to disrupt the continuity of surface, but remain linked nonetheless by painted marks that pursue connection and resolution.
Since graduating from the VCA in 2009, Tucker has had three sell-out solo shows, been a finalist in several national awards and been featured in Australian Art Collector magazine. She is represented by Helen Gory Galerie.
