Tarryn Gill is a multidisciplinary artist, based in Western Australia, who makes artworks spanning the mediums of sculpture, installation, photography, film, drawing, set and costume design and performance. Gill's aesthetics and materials are heavily informed by her background in competitive calisthenics from the age of 5 to 25. She now mines 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. Through her solo and collaborative practices, Tarryn has exhibited works and undertaken residency projects across Australia, in Argentina, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Portugal, the United Kingdom and the United States.


In 2016, Tarryn's sculptural works were included in the  2016 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art: Magic Object, Samstag Museum with numerous works acquired by the Art Gallery of South Australia (AGSA). These works were then shown in a solo exhibition at AGSA in early 2019. Tarryn was the 2016 winner of the $30,000 Acquisitive Bankwest Art Prize for Sculpture in Perth, WA and she was commissioned by Artbank to produce a large-scale sculpture for their collection in 2017.


In collaboration with Pilar Mata Dupont, Tarryn made work for the 17th  Biennale of Sydney and they won the Basil Sellers Art Prize in 2010. They held a ten year retrospective of their work at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art in 2011. In partnership with Thea Costantino and Dupont as collective Hold Your Horses, Tarryn made work commissioned by the Akademieder Künste, Berlin for the exhibition  Wagner 2013 Künstlerpositionen.


Notably, Tarryn has exhibited work at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney; the Art Gallery of Western Australia; the Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane. Tarryn is represented in Australian collections including Artbank, Art Gallery of South Australia, Art Gallery of Western Australia, Bankwest, City of Perth, Curtin University, Kerry Stokes Collection, Murdoch University, Queensland Art Gallery, Stadiums Queensland, Wesfarmer Arts and numerous private collections.
