/ / Artist Bios 2020

Trotter’s professional art practice began in 1990 exhibiting in galleries along the east coast of Australia. However by 1994 he found himself focusing on the creation of multi scaled public artworks. Using his architectural training and knowledge , Trotter has produced works that are innovative and engaging. Not only does he create high impact art pieces, he also has the ability to create intimate discovery works that engage and delight. His works can be stand alone sculptural pieces, as well as works that are built into the very fabric of a building and perform a function.

Since 1994 Trotter has created over 40 public works for government, councils, universities, and developers. Many works have been commissioned as high impact tools for the promotion of cultural tourism. Trotter has exhibited extensively though Regional Queensland since 1992. In 2001 and 2003 he had solo exhibitions in Tokyo and more recently World Expo – Shanghai 2010.
