Tarryn Gill

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, Gill has been included in biennials, exhibited works and undertaken residency projects across Australia, in Argentina, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Portugal, the United Kingdom and the United States. Gill has been the recipient of multiple awards since 2007. 

 

Gill is represented in the collections of Artbank, Art Gallery of South Australia, Art Gallery of Western Australia, Bankwest Art Collection, City of Perth Kerry Stokes Collection, Murdoch University Art Collection, Queensland Art Gallery & Gallery of Modern Art , Stadiums Queensland , Wesfarmer Arts, John Curtin Gallery, Numerous private collections
