Photographic and installation artist Lucia Rossi works with ongoing themes of embodiment, mapping, site and place. Lucia graduated with a Batchelor of Fine Arts at the Tasmanian School of Art (2003), and a Master of Contemporary Art at the Victorian College of the Arts (2018), where she is also currently completing a Master of Fine Arts by Research (due for completion in 2020). From 1999 Lucia spent almost a decade working plein-air in Tasmania, developing themes of body and nature mythology in relation to its Precambrian landscape. During this time, she was awarded two Arts Tasmania Wilderness Residencies, and several interior and exterior public art commissions for the Tasmanian ArtSite Scheme. In 2008, Lucia completed a two-year studio residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris. She has had six solo exhibitions and participated in numerous group exhibitions in Australia and France. She has been the recipient of a number of awards including the Stuart Black Memorial Scholarship (2018) and the Fiona Myer Award (2017) and has been a finalist in the National Photographic Portrait Prize (2014) and the City of Hobart Art Prize (2007).
Lucia has been teaching at Photography Studies College since 2014. Her previous teaching experience includes several years tutoring at TAFE Tasmania (2003-2007), and a lecturing position at the École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts Le Mans, France (2009).
