Tarryn Gill is a Western Australia-based multidisciplinary artist working across the mediums of photography, sculpture, installation, film, drawing and performance. Over the last 15 years, her practice has moved rhizomatically outwards from visual art through film, theatre, choreography, costume and set design. 

Following her residency at the Freud Museum in London in 2013, Gill has produced works that are a result of being privy to Freud's personal collection of Greek, Roman, Egyptian and Asian antiquities and the studio of his daughter and fellow analyst, Anna Freud. Gill's sculptures are reminiscent of characters found in folktales, pop culture, myths and legends, and many of her works appear like prophets, like the objects in Freud's possession. 

According to writer Ted Snell, Gill's 'self-reflexive interrogations into the rituals we construct around life and death combine personal memories with characters drawn from mythology and funerary art to activate the space between the earthly and other-worldly, where we can re-examine, rethink and reimagine our identity.'

Tarryn Gill in BankWest Acquisitive Art Prize

Tarryn Gill has been selected as a finalist in the Bankwest Acquisitive Prize with her work, Guardian Totem (with Toad), 2016 (pictured).

The work is part of Gill's Guardian series, which began following her residency at the Freud Museum in London. After being privy to the collection of antiquities in Freud's study, she was inspired to create soft sculptures that appear like seers or prophets. The series also draws inspiration from Japanese tomb ornaments (Haniwa), which are arranged to protect the dead and drive away evil. The works are self-reflexive interrogations in to rituals relating to life and death.

The exhibition opens on 23 November 2016 at Bankwest Art Gallery, Bankwest Place, 300 Murray Street, Perth.
