Tarryn Gill

Finalist in 2015, Tarryn Gill is a Western Australian based multidisciplinary artist who works across sculpture, photography, video, drawing, theatre set and costume design and performance. Through her solo and collaborative practices, she has exhibited works and undertaken residency projects across Australia, in Argentina, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Psychoanalytic ideas have long played a role in Gill’s work and she is interested in exploring the liminal space between the conscious and unconscious, personal and the collective, the contemporary and ancient. Her aesthetics and materials are heavily informed by her background in competitive calisthenics and dance from the age of 5 to 25. Her art making processes now mine this source material to assert the value of the feminine and personal against the masculine model of genius that has defined much of art history.

Tarryn is represented by Gallery Sally Dan-Cuthbert
